After the success of 1981’s Christiane F, other youth junkie prostitute dramas were churned out of the European exploitation factory, with this scumcaked Italian knockoff the most brazen lift. Hanna is a severely wayward teenager, selling herself at bargain rates before going home to trade face slaps with her naked alcoholic mother. Though Hanna’s friends regularly die from graphic overdoses, she samples heroin and immediately succumbs to its charms. She’s soon locked in a detox center where a cellmate extracts a hidden syringe from her anus and injects its contents beneath Hanna’s tongue. Later, after taking a boat ride with several spiked, top-grade punks, our little miss shoots up under her eyelid and pukes. Murder your children before its too late.
