Wanda is a dominatrix who runs a gallery on the Hamburg waterfront. She is a business woman who smashes sexual stereotypes and social taboos with icy self-possession and an enigmatic smile. As artist she specializes in the staging of elaborate S & M fantasies and her affairs transgress the usual boundaries of personal and professional life. Along the way she leaves her German lesbian lover, a shoe fetishist, for an American “trainee” and does more than step on the toes of the male performer who has broken the rules of the master-slave relationship by falling in love with her.
