Dorothee, a would-be writer and journalist, leaves Germany for the Oz of San Francisco, searching for her long-lost mother and a cure for the malady of love. Installed in the Tenderloin, she peeps in on neighbors’ bizarre sex rituals and does sightseeing of the more traditional kind. But encounters with male impersonator Ramona, charming Hungarian bohemian Dominique, and Susie Sexpert, the barker at an all-girl strip show, lead to exploratory adventures of selfdiscovery and fun. When Dorothee surfaces like a dazzled tourist on the wilder shores of the city’s lesbian community, she has discovered her true sexuality … and left some illusions behind. (16mm)
