Synopsis/Details: 

Targeting lone male tourists arriving new to Rome, displaced East European friends - Polonia and Amelie - trade on their looks and hospitality to scam men into a supposed 'date-rape' scenario, that sees their marks forced to hand over substantial sums of money in order to ensure the girls’ silence. The scam goes to plan until one of their victims accidentally dies and the girls attempt to cover it up as a suicide. Unfortunately, they're seen dumping the body on the beach by corrupt cop, Inspector Moretti, who wants in on the action and pushes the girls further into a life of crime. Eventually. His blackmailing gets the better of Moretti when the girls frame him for the death of the tourist and he's finally out of their lives - and their scam - for good.
