In the period between the first and second world wars, Paris Berlin, and Shanghai were notorious hot spots of sin and vice. Debauchery, brutality and corruption co-mingled with art, culture and political liberties.

Tolerance and freedom were pushed to their limits. This revealing new documentary series of 3 films in a 2-DVD set is filled with rare, evocative archival film and photos which bring to life an extraordinary cast of musicians, artists, journalists, rogues and sinners, resulting in a richly drawn portrait of time and place.

Berlin: Metropolis of Vice Berlin transformed itself into the Babylon of the world. Degnerate caberets, bars, and clubs catering to every sexual daydream sprang up like mushrooms. Censorship was all but non-existent.

Paris: The Crazy Years Prostitution was legal, brothels flourished. Petty theives, drug dealers, and street walkers packed the all night-bars of Montmartre where cheap sex and cheap booze drew the tourists. The art students' ball took over the streets in a public orgy of alcohol and sex.

Shanghai: Paradise for Adventurers Nightclubs never closed and hotels supplied heroin with room service. No passport was required. Refugees of war, poverty, and politics wandered the streets among the gangsters, prostitutes and cops.
