Maggie, a 50-year-old widow, is looking desperately for money to pay for a last-chance treatment for her dying grandson. Having tried almost everything, Maggie drifts aimlessly through the streets of Soho in London.
A poster in front of "Sexy World" catches her eye: "Hostess wanted." Too dazed, desperate and naive to realize what she's doing, she enters the club. Miki, Sexy World's cynical owner, can't believe his eyes. Intrigued, he decides to have some fun and offers her a job.
Working under the pseudonym of "Irina Palm," Maggie applies herself in order not to lose her job.
