Crisply-told tale deals with a mute, stunningly attractive young woman worker (Zoe Tamerlis) in New York’s garment district who is traumatized one night by (1) being raped in an alley on the way home and then (2) raped a second time by a burglar waiting in her apartment.

Killing the burglar in self-defense, she takes his gun and embarks on a vendetta of shooting down lecherous males. Ultimately her killing spree becomes undiscriminating in its victims.

By keeping the picture short and busy, Ferrara makes its far-fetched elements play. His shock material works mainly by suggestion but there are enough ‘gross’ elements to separate thrill-seeking viewers from traditionalists.
