Storyline

Charming working class boy Eric is moving up by pimping in Martin Duvall's nightclub. He falls in love with naive Jessica 'Jesse' Kerner, who enjoys the luxury life and doesn't have to do a thing. Still Jesse's single mother Katherine 'Kate' Kerner, who always was permissive to avoid resembling her own strict mother, judge Edna Burton, mistrusts Eric. Her bugging ends up driving Jesse in the arms of hard pimp Russell, who hides her. Kate goes looking, but the police sees no crime, so Edna's help is now wanted. Written by KGF Vissers

I enjoyed this movie quite realistic..
22 June 2015 | by seve072See all my reviews

i live in France and watched this TV movie in french and i enjoyed it..Jessie is very naïve but credible and i find the other comments very critical towards her performance.She is pretty,has everything for her but doesn't have good grades and success in modelling and she lost her father who is absent so she needs love and affection and will fall in love with a wannabe pimp Erik who is weird since the beginning. The mother or Lindsay wagner who was too permissive is just perfect with her daughter and just knows the temper of the boy.And Piper laurie is excellent.Actually the mother always had a hard relationship with her own strict mother and joined a bad band when she was a teen and Jessie just repeats the same pattern.It is interesting to see how things can repeat.And the other pimp russel is disgusting and revolting using Jessie just to have sex and telling her she is not sexy and too thin..A sad story but with a good end.Thanks! I would have liked to know the real name of Jessie in the credit and i regret it is not mentioned.
