Desperate Living

When a wealthy housewife and her maid murder the former’s husband, the two are forced to go on the run from a cop with an underwear fetish. They end up in the town of Mortville, a garbage dump refuge where criminals live under the rule of Queen Carlotta. The two move in with violent Mole McHenry and her girlfriend Muffy St. Jacques, where a classic John Waters plot involving rabies, a winning lottery ticket, and a nudist camp begins to unfold.
