A brother and sister were forced to leave their home country. She wanted the same rights as a man. He just wanted to love one. They arrive on the lower east side of Manhattan, finding lodging and work in a hotel.

Unbeknowst to them, the hotel is actual a front for a gang run brothel.


As the brother and sister move forward towards what they desire most, they're pulled deeper and deeper into the dealings of the hotel. It's a place where sex is sold and the police are bought, where love and lust know no boundaries except revenge. It's a place where landing in the gutter is considered social climbing. A place so corrupt there's only way to check out: by drinking carbolic acid.
