Plot – Claudia Draper is a prostitute who comes from a wealthy family and is accused of murder, risking a 25 years sentence. In order to save her from the heavy sentence, the family relies on a talented lawyer. Claudia is declared incapable of discernment and interned in a psychiatric institution, from which she will get out after a few years. As the woman gets rid of the polished defender, she's entrusted to a public one, Aaron Levinsky, who however sees in her a keen intelligence and the ability to collaborate in her defense. Claudia cooperates in fact regardless of any possible legal technicality, revealing a rugged family hinterland, made of Freudian tones due to which she conducts a squalid lifestyle, and telling her lawyer the intolerable demands of the murdered client who unleashed her deadly reaction.
