The meanwhile deceased bestseller author Heinz Sobota provides a raw account of his past as a pimp in Vienna’s red­light district. Along with Sobota, the film also focuses on four women who have found different levels of reflection to look back at the chapters of their lives that they spent with him: an ambivalent, at times tyrannical man who knew how to use his appeal to the opposite sex for well-­aimed manipulation.
