Familiar road to ruin moralising. as teenage runaway turns to prostitution in the big city and tragedy ensues at the hand of an unscrupulous pimp. The director's background in documentary is evident in the authenticity ofthe street scenes. but a tacky narrative ensures the film remains within the confines ofexploitation. Glasgow; GET
