Twists and turns as a clever policeman investigates the death of an abusive businessman who has recently divorced his wife and taken custody of their only child, by revealing her past as a porn star. LAURA LOHNER is his prime suspect in a web of S&M games filled with prostitutes and high class hookers. There’s one problem: Laura has the perfect motive…but she also has the perfect alibi.
When FRANK LOHNER is found shot dead execution style, with six bullets to his body and an unconscious (and drugged) beautiful prostitute at his side, DETECTIVE ADAMS suspects Laura Lohner and sets out to question STAR, the young prostitute about her connections to Laura. As he delves deeper into the suspicious connections between the two women, the detective sets a trap to catch Laura in the act of pulling strings. He convinces Star she too is a victim, even though Laura has been the only one to protect her from her vicious ex-boyfriend SID…who coincidentally acted with Laura back in the day.
As Detective Adams closes in on Laura, he is convinced he can get her to confess, and save Star from her obsession with the manipulative Laura.
But who is playing whom? And who is the real victim?

If you watch a newscast today, listen to the radio or a podcast then you are benefiting from the work of Lowell Thomas. Lowell Thomas was more famous than any American journalist has ever been. Thomas - quite the swashbuckling adventurer -- took American audiences with him on the radio and in newsreels, establishing personality driven journalism and reporting from around the world. During the First World War, Thomas traveled to the Middle East and discovered T.E. Lawrence, making him the celebrity, Lawrence of Arabia. Thomas was the role model for intrepid foreign correspondents today. The man who helped invent this way of reporting and telling the news was the Indiana Jones of journalism: crashing planes, falling from horses, staring down rifles but always coming back with the story. His stories shaped American knowledge of the world and influenced foreign policy. Later he managed to slip into Tibet, where he interviewed the Dalai Lama just before the Chinese invaded. In due course his enterprising zeal led him to found Capital Cities, which eventually bought ABC before being sold itself to Disney for 17 Billion dollars . Lowell Thomas' journalism is the journalism today described- sometimes bitterly, sometimes reverently - as "mainstream journalism." He was the original deep voiced omnipotent journalistic narrator: the first "voice of god." But his journalism was not always traditional. This documentary will tell the story of its creation.
