Synopsis

At the Eager Beaver, a topless bar in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, former FBI clerk Erin Grant dances nightly in order to raise enough money to regain custody of her seven year-old daughter, Angela. David Dilbeck, a kinky Congressman controlled by a gang of murderous sugar cane growers, staggers into the club and can't contain his sexual urges while watching Erin dance. He is recognized by Jerry Killian, a sharp-eyed regular, who, also infatuated with Erin, initiates a blackmail plan against Dilbeck meant to aid Erin in her court case. Killian is soon murdered, and Detective Al Garcia finds the blackmailer's body floating in a lake. The plot spreads from there and begins to include characters from society's fringes; there's Shad, the Eager Beaver's menacing bouncer with some ingenious blackmail schemes of his own. Darrell, Erin's psychopathic ex-husband, a small-time crook who deals in wheelchairs stolen from rest homes and hospitals.
