==Synopsis==
===Plot Summary===
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.  
*An English soldier (Cliver) returns home from the Zulu war with the daughter of a tribal king (Gemser) as his slave (a gift that he was given for "saving" the kings life). The spoils of war, ya know? While he's been gone, his wife has been having an affair with the female housekeeper (Belle). Not at all pleased with being a slave, the Ebony princess notices the mistress of the house engaging in a quick bit of foreplay with the housekeeper and plots her revenge starting with the seduction of the mistress. Jealousy spreads like wildfire and before you know it, she has turned the household into a lustful frenzy of sex and hatred.
