“It’s the turn of the XXth century. The ‘Butcher of the Garden Cafes’ is on the prowl for young loose women. Florence has no family and works as a maid. Her only friend and thus family is her fellow maid, fun-loving Agatha, and Florence loses her to what she saw was murder but others only see as suicide. She decides to take matters into her own hands. In her pursuit, she ends up a servant in a luxury house of call-girls. She even becomes quite good at certain lascivious practices while still remaining a virgin! But she also doesn’t lose sight of her goal: find the Butcher. A suspenseful spicy tale as only the French could so lightly get away with, yet deceptive in its depth and realism. “
