The first roughie by Doris Wishman, with sexuality as a central subject, is a rape and revenge film, a subgenre of exploitation cinema. In this film, Gigi Darlene is Meg, a housewife who flees Boston for New York after killing the doorman of her building while he tried to rape her. Structured by a long dream sequence, the film follows Meg through several other encounters as she tries to escape prison.
