"You're all the same, you long-haired layabouts" invited teenage rebellion in the Sixties and this piece of dialogue is uttered in this somewhat sleazy exploitation film made in 1969, released in 1970, and typical of the British movies of the period in what were called 'the saucy Seventies'.
From a conservative upbringing, Sally had been secretly attending rock concerts and decided to stow away in the back of the roadie's transit van to London.

Becoming a groupie, she sleeps with a succession of musicians who treat her and the other groupies with a great deal of disrespect. She hooks up with Steve, leader of an up-and-coming band, but when they are accidentally locked in a hotel room with two other sex-crazed groupies, their relationship comes to an end.

When the group's speeding van comes alongside that of the 'Sweaty Betty' band Steve, fed up of Sally, decides to give her to the other group. While still speeding on the motorway they pass Sally over to the other van, but doing so results in their own van crashing and Steve is killed.

Sally stays with 'Sweaty Betty' on their estate where, during one of their parties, the police arrive to search for drugs and investigate Steve's death. Sally tries to hide the evidence by swallowing a vast amount of the drugs which completely blows her mind. Later she falls in love with the folk artist Billy Boyle but the relationship ends in tears for her.

The film soundtrack features a London band called Opal Butterfly who played as 'Sweaty Betty'
