Russian student Irina (Elena Panova) is desperate for a Swiss passport, and gets her opportunity when she's sponsored by attorney Alfred Waldvogel (Ulrich Noethen) and fashion designer Charlotte De (Geraldine Chaplin). Of course, they have their own motives -- namely, transforming the girl into an upscale prostitute who specializes in servicing the lewd desires of Switzerland's elite. But, when the pair break their promise to Irina, she begins a battle that may end up toppling the government.
