Hitting their strides, Waters and leading lady Divine unreel a perhaps cautionary tale of a runaway schoolgirl impregnated by a creep (also played by Divine, but out of drag) and through the years becoming a single mother-turned-criminal-turned-lunatic. Waters troupers on hand include David Lochery (in his final film), Mary Vivian Pearce, Cookie Mueller, Mink Stole, Edith Massey, two Susans—Walsh and Lowe—and Pat Moran (later an Emmy-winning casting director).
