Synopsis
In 1917 New Orleans, photographer Ernest J. Bellocq goes to the red-light district to document the last days of legal prostitution. At the home of Madame Nell, he meets a prostitute named Hattie and her 12-year-old daughter, Violet, who is captivated by him. A few months later, when Hattie marries and moves away, leaving the Violet behind, Nell is preparing to auction off the little girl's virginity and Violet decides that she wants to marry Bellocq.
