74 year old Auckland madam Flora MacKenzie talks to Ray Hays about owning a brothel and about prostitution. She talks about how she got started in the business.

A young woman who works for Flora gives her view of her employer.

Flora discusses legalisation of prostitution. She is outraged when Ray Hays asks her if she ever worked as a prostitute herself. She says she still has religious beliefs and gives her views on modern sexuality and abortion, which she thinks should be legalised.

She has been convicted five times on charges of keeping a brothel and comments on her most recent court appearance.
