Desiree Blanc wants to be a gun-moll. Born into poverty in rural northern Mississippi, Dorothy Jellnick grew into an ash-blonde beauty. Everyone told her to go to Hollywood, show the movie people a real southern belle.

Determined to never be poor again, Desiree discovers a short cut to big money – crime. It is the summer of 1947.
As the story opens, Desiree and her hoodlum boyfriend rob a tourist from Kansas, leaving the man in his skivvies on a rural highway just outside New Orleans. More crimes and more money follows. The white-hot beauty surrenders to avarice – the unreasonably strong desire to obtain and keep the money – in a dangerous and deadly game.
