The Story of Joanna is a visual masterpiece dealing with human degradation and S&M. The sets are artistically atmospheric, the costumes capture the period perfectly and the scenes are superior fetish eroticism. Jamie Gillis plays Jason, an odd, possessive misogynist who totally abuses females after first charming them. There are no limits to his cruelty and no rules go unbroken. Terri Hall, as Joanna, becomes interested in Jason and gradually submits to his bizarre requests.
