Release the Princess is a gimmick-filled TV show known for its extravagant prizes. Its dungeon-like set features a hanging cage in which a beautiful, helpless Princess is held, waiting for the contestant who will succeed in releasing her. Schechter, the host of the show, keeps Elinor locked up there, so that she can be his lover. Out of the blue he gets a phone call from Mona, demanding that he “release the princess”. Not long afterward, the princess disappears. Shechter and his bosses set off on a manhunt to find the girl who personifies their show. Meanwhile, Mona will do everything she can to make sure the cage stays empty.
