Synopsis: A black-and-white triptych of personal destruction following a stripper June as she drifts in and out of the lives of three shadowy men. The first is Levey, an intellectually gifted burnout living in a motel, reading books and playing chess. His night terrors, blackouts, paranoia, rage and the sexual advances from his creepy friend Ed forces June to leave. She ends up with Vince a low-level gangster connected to strip clubs and involved in the adult entertainment industry. His lifestyle of sex, violence and drugs takes its toll and leads June into the final segment – a return to find Levey, but instead ending up in the grotesque and horrifying world of a dying Ed.
