From the infamous Joe D'Amato – director of such EuroSleaze classics as EMANUELLE IN BANGKOK and PAPAYA: LOVE GODDESS OF THE CANNIBALS – comes perhaps his most sumptuous skin saga of all! Legendary sex goddess Laura Gemser (BLACK EMANUELLE) stars as an African princess brought home as a slave by a 1940s military officer, only to be sucked into a depraved new world of voyeurism, drugs, pornography, lesbian seduction, unholy nuns and more.
