THE STORY: Tish is a young woman who dances in a topless bar. When her best friend is brutally murdered, Tish becomes obsessed with who killed her friend and why. The action moves rapidly from the past to the present, in and out of Tish's mind from a topless bar, to a hustler's apartment, to the middle of the street, as she tries to put together a fractured world where the pieces no longer fit. Tish finds her suspect playing the saxophone in a jazz club and risks her own life by coercing him into a reenactment of the crime. In a shocking turnaround, Tish finds what she's looking for.

"…an authentic and authentically theatrical voice…" —Variety. "[A] taut and sufficiently tawdry suspense drama…" —Daily Record.
