Four New York misfits search for a reason for living. One is a pimp, the second a woman who works as a target in knife throwing contests, the third a belly dancer, and the fourth is a black Irishman. Their hangout is Ferdousine's Zoo, a Manhattan pet shop, until the action switches to the subway system for a confrontation with the Black Swans, a tunnel cult.
