Dorothee, a would-be writer and journalist, leaves Germany for San Francisco, searching for her long-lost mother and a cure for the malady of love. Installed in the Tenderloin, she peeps on her neighbors’ bizarre sex rituals as well as doing sightseeing of the more traditional kind. But encounters with male impersonator Ramona, charming Hungarian Dominique, and Susie Sexpert, a barker for an all-girl strip show, lead to exploratory adventures of self-discovery 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.
