Lily Powers has led a difficult life working in her loutish father's speakeasy in Erie, Pennsylvania, he who coerced her into prostitution since she was 14. When she is given a chance to start a new life, she is advised by Adolf Cragg, her friend and a follower of the teachings of Friedrich Nietzsche, to use her power over men to get want she wants. Moving to New York City with her friend and conspirator Chico, Lily does exactly that.
She decides to sleep her way up the corporate ladder at Gotham Trust, using men the way they have used her in the past. In her quest, she not only uses those men, but ruins them in the process. Her main goal is to find the man who can best afford to provide her a carefree lifestyle. Things for Lily and for Gotham Trust itself change when the bank's board appoints a new company president, playboy Courtland Trenholm.
