Set during the final months of legal prostitution in Storyville, New Orleans' red-light district, a sex worker (Sarandon) and her daughter Violet (Shields) meet photographer Ernest J Bellocq (Carradine) as Violet is about to be inducted into her mother's trade. Shocking, then and now, for its inclusion of a nude, 12-year-old Shields.
