In 'Begonia' the young and innocent Dolly is shocked to find a graphic S&M 'pulp' novel in her fiancés brief case. Her love for him immediately drops to freezing temperatures. At the same time she is a young curious woman who knows there is more to the world than just its artificial surface. She teams up with a feisty librarian to discover a world she never knew existed.
