Lauren is struggling to make ends meet while taking a degree in political sciences. One day she receives a videotape advertising a high class call-girl agency, which she decides to join. One of the many influential people she meets is Lord Bulbeck. They have an affair, but Lauren soon discovers that she is being used for political purposes.
Dr. Lauren Slaughter, a research fellow at the Arab-Anglo Institute in London is utterly frustrated by her job. To supplement her income, she starts moonlighting at the Jasmine Escort Service, where she has more control over men and money than she does at the office. On one of her dates, Lauren meets the politician Lord Bulbeck who is trying to mediate a peace accord between the Arabs and Israelis. Bulbeck falls in love with his escort, and unwittingly, Lauren becomes a pawn in some very dirty politics.
