Mima is the lead singer in an all-girl band, and decides to become an actress. She finds it hard to be taken seriously and is forced to change her image. In her first feature she plays a stripper who is raped and sets off on a wild killing spree. A disturbed fan, who also runs her website, refuses to accept that his favorite star is changing her persona. He is obsessed with keeping Mima the innocent young starlet that he has fallen in love with. After several of the people associated with casting her in smutty roles are murdered, Mima becomes plagued with disturbing hallucinations and is stalked by the deranged Webmaster who somehow knows too many details of her personal life.
