A five part internet special written and directed by [[WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob Brad Jones]]. It tells the story of an unnamed [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold hooker]] (played by Sarah Lewis from Team Snob) who has a [[MadeFromRealGirlScouts literal heart of gold]] surgically implanted into her body at the hands of a fringe, out-of-work doctor named Dr. Rogen. The doctor is desperate for his experiment to succeed so that he may pay off an insane gangster named Steele. It just so happens Steele's twin brother, Zalman, is the aforementioned hooker's pimp, both of them being masterfully played by Brad Jones himself.

* ActorAllusion: Zalman makes references to low budget films much like the Snob does. Both of his performances have shades of the Snob character, if the Snob were a sociopath.

* AxCrazy: Steele [[spoiler:after his operation]]. The mercenaries in Part 5 may also qualify, [[InformedAttribute so we're told]]



* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: Well, more evil. Dr Rogen operated on Steele, after which Steele became considerably more unhinged and sadistic. We're not told why, but Dr Rogen probably did not have any anaesthetic...

* DrugsAreBad: Averted. The Hooker's cocaine habit only seems to make her stronger, and Dr Rogen theorises that it might make the heart work more efficiently. No {{anvilicious}} statement here.

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: The hooker hasn't been in the military or anything like that, and it's never explained exactly why she knows how to shoot so well.

What follows in an incredibly well written and well edited homage to all of Brad Jones' favorite film genres, from exploitation to revenge to low budget snuff films that never saw the light of day (and thankfully never did). Jones' [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome choice of soundtrack]] really steals the show, though. His love of all kinds of music, from [[TheSeventies 70's soul and disco]] to old school rock and roll to beloved hits of the [[TheEighties 80's]], really shines here and adds to the overall film.
