Middle-aged Maggie must find a way to get enough money for her grandson’s lifesaving medical treatment. When a “Hostess Wanted” sign catches her eye, Maggie naively stumbles into a city sex club. The true job description is quite a surprise for the respectable, middle-class widow, even if she isn’t a prude. At Sexy World, the shy but sprightly Maggie meets the club's charming owner, Miki, who gently introduces her to her tasks as a "hostess". Her new colleague, Luisa, acquaints her with the rules of the game and, before long, the conscientious Maggie becomes the much sought after and well-paid Irina Palm. Along with the cash, Maggie gains renewed self-confidence, realising that she's not as old, unattractive and useless as she had believed herself to be.
