The Decadents

The Decadents


1899, and the Gold Rush town of Nome is a demimonde of Yukon showgirls, hard-drinking sourdough miners, whores, claim-jumpers and saloon floozies. Ingénue Lily is lured by the creamy bosom and juicy body of red-haired dancehall girl and seductrix extraordinaire Nancy, smack into the debauched pleasures of perverse sexuality, absinthe-drinking and raunchy burlesque. Lily must save her own skin while fighting her strong urge to succumb once more to Nancy’s wicked ways, and to Claire, a blonde stage clairvoyant only too eager to initiate girls into the most bizarre paranormal adventures.
