Story intro

Former New York City-based stripper Dorothy is invited for an interview with Elizabeth, a journalist working on a story involving Dorothy's former friend and mentor, Ramona Vega. In 2007, Dorothy, known by her stripper name as Destiny, is working at a strip club to support her grandmother but is continually frustrated by her inability to attract paying clients. After watching Ramona's very popular performance, Dorothy goes to meet with her and they hit it off, with Ramona taking Destiny under her wing and teaching her how to recognize the three different types of customers. The first type are insecure men who don't spend much but can be strung along for weeks or even months, the second type are regulars that visit the club frequently, and the third type includes the CEOs, bankers, and hedge funders ready to spend thousands for a good night. Together, the two form a formidable team targeting their third type of clients, with Dorothy using her newly acquired wealth to purchase her own apartment and feed her shopping addiction. A year later, the financial crisis strikes, and both Dorothy and Ramona find themselves without enough clients to support their lifestyles. Dorothy's boyfriend abandons her and their infant daughter, and she is unable to find a new job due to her lack of experience. With no other options, Dorothy goes back to stripping only to find that her old club is now populated by customers who demand sex, a line she is unwilling to cross. Ramona then introduces her to a scheme involving her two protegées, Mercedes and Annabelle: targeting rich men at bars, getting them drunk, and then escorting them to the club where the girls steal their credit card numbers and charge them to their limit. Dorothy joins in, and learns that Ramona has also been experimenting with a potentially lethal concoction of ketamine and MDMA designed to induce memory loss while also impairing their judgment and sense of restraint.
