A spoiled rich girl hatches a plot with her hippie boyfriend and his friends to "kidnap" her so they can get a large ransom from her wealthy father. However, she didn't count on her villainous, money-crazed stepmother to involve herself in the plot, and things begin to go terribly wrong.

It's kind of hard to categorize this movie. It doesn't really have the mystery elements of a giallo thriller. It kind of turns into nihilistic hostage drama at one point like an Italian "terror" film, but it was made well before the classics of that "genre" like "Late Night Trains" and "House by the Edge of the Park". And it's just too flat-out ridiculous to be any kind of serious drama: At one point, for instance, the protagonist opens the door to the black maid of a family the gang is holding hostage. For no real reason (other than the obvious) she invites her in and engages her in a catfight which eventually turns into a steamy lesbian sex scene!
