Synopsis
An innovative telling of the story of Salome, the whorish daughter of queen Herod, who is lusted after by her depraved stepfather, King Tetrac. When her attempted seduction of the visiting John The Baptist fails, she agrees to satisfy her stepfather's perverted whims through the infamous dance of the seven veils. She then demands that Tetrac do her bidding and murder John The Baptist.
