To the unititated, Hillingbury seems much like any other dormitory home-counties suburb, but to the residents its a sexual playground of domination and submission. The women who run the social scene also run their submissives - or 'pets' - ragged. In the social pecking order, sexual domination equal social dominance. For Jeannie, newly arrived in the area, this leads to the discovery of her own submissive sexuality, but she doesn't think it's fair tha it should determine her place in the social order. Jeannie's a spirited girl, and the sparks tha fly ensure that the women of Hilligbury will find it harder than they thought, now that Jeannie's around, to keep up appearances.
