GLORY VS. THE WOLVES
Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, a pack of despicable wolves held captive four beautiful princesses, Glory, Spike, Choke Chain and Flesh. Born into their dungeons, the princesses were never allowed to learn of the outside world. They were forced to use their talents and beauty to please the wolves until their lives were completely drained. Their only hope was to wait until Glory’s father, the brave knight, would return to rescue them. Until, one day, reality appears to these four women in the form of a newspaper from the world beyond the brothel walls. An article that chronicles a sexual assault trial teaches the women words they never knew before like abuse, rape, and choice. Armed with this new understanding, Glory is through waiting for a knight who only exists in fairy tales. Instead, Glory leads a revolt against the brothel and the wolves that hold them prisoner.
