A prostitute and an AWOL air force cadet fall in love and try to build a new life in New York City - but they will turn against each other when another man enters the picture
It started out innocently enough. Disowned by her God-fearing parents, Honour Mercy Bane takes up a new name - Honey - and a new profession as a prostitute. After just two weeks’ work she falls for Richie, a skinny little virgin who’s gone AWOL from air force training and looking for a place to hide. Honey takes him to New York City, where a $20 trick draws $200 and the city’s power players go gaga for a Southern belle. It’s not long before another john decides he loves her, the two men who never minded Honey’s work become rivals, and her pleasant little life collapses in a hurricane of drugs, violence, and murderous lust.
