"A genre all by herself" (Voice), Pam Grier tackles -- and shackles -- her sleekest role yet as the feistier half of a pair of women in chains and on the run in this "colorful, outrageous and truly exciting" action flick (The Hollywood Reporter)!
Grier is Lee Daniels, a prostitute doing hard time in an island prison camp for women where the guards have a new way to punish inmates who fight: by cuffing 'em together! Chained to her bitter rival, white revolutionary Karen (Margaret Markov), Lee finds herself literally linked to the revolutionary cause -- and on the fly -- when Karen's guerrilla friends stage a coup! But this foxy inmate's got a cause of her own in the form of a secret stash of cold, hard cash and a getaway boat! Brawling with her white counterpart over which way to go, and tracked like a dog by guards, guerrillas and a gangster after the loot, she's gotta make her escape -- before both mamas' enemies bring them down for good!
In this U.S.-Filipino co-production a pair of chained-together women inmates escape from a Filipino prison, pursued by an array of bad guys and girl guards. Cult blaxploitation star Pam Grier, who later made a big splash as the eponymous heroine of Quentin Tarantino's second feature, FOXY BROWN, stars.
