Under the guise of a circus amusement promising the exclusive and behind closed doors performance of various illegal acts, Lady Divine and her gang of psychopaths rob and slaughter their audience. But Divine's increasingly uncontrollable behavior annoys her accomplices, who strongly plan to get rid of her.
Bad taste elevated to the rank of major art in a movie where situational inventiveness disputes the trashy flavor of dialogues and where depravity, betrayal and lobster are the pillars of a gross and uncompromising melodrama.
