Adapted by Ian Allen
From the novel by Robert Gover

When JC, a white preppy college boy, spends the weekend with Kitten, a pretty 14-year-old black prostitute, he falls prey to the manly misapprehension that she’s invited him because she finds him irrresistable. But when JC refuses to pay up, Kitten steals her rightful $100 fee. Thus, the two begin a rocky and romantic spin through Gover’s cult classic – a rich landscape of pimps, truckers, fratboys, Bond-girls – set against the backdrop of America’s pained racial psyche.
