Synopsis[edit]

Alberta leaves her small hometown to move to the city, and she moves in with her former babysitter, Celene, who wears thigh high boots and is now a professional dominatrix. Out of money, Alberta decides to impersonate her roommate's identity, lured by the $300 per hour pay rate. While working with her first client, Paul, three men break into the house, believing that Paul stole half a million dollars from them. Paul defends himself, saying that whatever money he has, he had won at the casino. Alberta flees the scene, grabbing Paul's money on her way out, which leads the robbers to believe that she is involved with the theft as well. For the rest of the movie, Alberta and Celene try to deal with the three robbers, and rescue Paul from them.
