After asking him a series of unusual qualifying questions, we see them begin a temporary "relationship”, leading to the saving of a life and the ending of another.

All first days are shit. We follow Wendy's inaugural shift at Tartarus, a down-on-its-luck New York City dungeon. Teeming with strange characters and stranger new experiences, our fledgling Dominatrix discovers a surprising yet rewarding hidden talent.
