Legendary pop icon and actress Marianne Faithfull stars as Maggie, a middle-aged widow who, desperate to raise money to pay for her grandson's medical bills, takes a hostess job in a London sex club. She soon transforms herself into the much sought after and highly paid "Irina Palm." Along with her new persona, Maggie gains renewed self-confidence, realizing she is not as old and unattractive as she thought. But her two worlds collide as her clandestine existence provokes the suspicions of her family and inquisitive neighbors alike. Co-starring Miki Manojlovic, Kevin Bishop and Jenny Agutter.
