After the death of his wife, wealthy businessman Philip Emmenthal and his son Storey open their own private harem in their family residence in Geneva (they get the idea while watching Federico Fellini's 8½ and after Storey is "given" a woman, Simato (Inoh), to waive her pachinko debts). They sign one-year contracts with eight (and a half) women to this effect. The women each have a gimmick (one is a nun, another a kabuki performer, etc.). Philip soon becomes dominated by his favourite of the concubines, Palmira, who has no interest in Storey as a lover, despite what their contract might stipulate. Philip dies, the concubines' contracts expire, and Storey is left alone with Giulietta (the titular "½", played by Fujiwara) and of course the money and the houses.
Eight women gather to celebrate Christmas in a snowbound cottage, only to find the family patriarch dead with a knife in his back. Trapped in the house, every woman becomes a suspect, each having her own motive and secret.
When her sister turns up dead, Julia (Linda Jones) tries to convince the cops that a notorious gangster is to blame by going undercover as a prisoner to unearth the only witness to the crime. Problems arise when the sexually perverse warden (Rita Silva) adopts Julia as her new plaything and throws her noble mission off-course. Ajita Wilson and Alessandro Freyberger co-star in this erotically charged thriller.

Little Women, also known as Wakakusa no Yon Shimai, is a 1981 Japanese animated television series adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. The series is directed by Kazuya Miyazaki and produced by Toei Animation for the Kokusai Eigasha company. The series was produced as a follow-up to a TV special based on Alcott's novel the previous year by the same animation studio.
