       The story of one woman's struggle to be the top executive of the oldest profession in the biggest city. In the city that never sleeps, Kathleen Oakmont is considered the gate-keeper to it's darkest desires. A Madam by trade, she runs the most successful and luxurious brothel in Manhattan. A trusted confidant of her clients, Madam Kat, knows how to run a good business. She's ruthless, loyal, and is the keeper of many secrets for her high ranking clientele.


It's not until an upcoming election to make prostitution legal, stirs up Kathleen's structure, that makes her worry for her security. Times are changing and everyone is coming out of the woodwork for this new idea, including Kathleen's rival, Georgie Dean, who threatens to turn her business into a meat factory.


Luckily, Madam Kat's top client, Congressman Brian Figarello, is here to provide the inside tips and deep pockets. All the characters come out to play, sides are swapped, and needs are satiated, as the underbelly of New York is shown to be it's strongest asset in this dark comedy.

She is a woman of great esteem. Known throughout the scene as a woman of wealth and stature. She is cold and unmoved. Hardened by years in a harsh and brutal business she does not shake easily. Like Michael Corleone she is both Warm and rigid offering her hand and never showing her back. She has an inviting smile, nut a dangerous scowl. But when the threat of legal prostitution comes to her door she must do anything she can to save her business. Eve is the Creator and producer of the film.

Uncouth in private but very well put together in public. He knows he is for the most part protected. His clean cut responsible image on the television is in great contrast to his sailor’s vocabulary and prison manners. He always seems to want to say “who'd believe you anyway”. The congressman has a wife and one son. Of course he has more than his fair share of mistresses on the side. He is in the pocket of the city second most successful Madam Georgie.
