Synopsis / Plot
It is basically a story of female bondage, as glamorous, desirable model/jet setter Margaret (played by Rosanna Schiaffino), takes in the plastic/perfect Silvia (young Haydeé Politoff) and grooms her for some great undertaking -presumably she will become a model. With various servants tending to every detail of Politoff's physical aspect (hair, nails, makeup, clothing, etc.) film's early reels promise the prospect of an ALL ABOUT EVE twisting storyline, but such is not the case. Instead Silvia is subject to Margaret's every whim and flighty change of mood, a female slave who is humiliated at every opportunity. She's not there to do menial work, no there are innumerable servants for that. She's a plaything, almost a real-life doll. One could imagine the film being made on a similar premise (as are many Japanese anime efforts) of her being a realistic robot or sex toy.
