Her abductors are two desperate criminals with a briefcase full of loot. Their car breaks down in a remote forest, and after a struggle that leaves her stripped to her underwear, Josette manages to grab the money and run away into the woods, but Josette is still in danger. A circus geek (Mike Butts), kept captive in a rundown carnival freakshow and forced to perform degrading stunts, has escaped from his cage and further torments the unfortunate naked girl.
