Friday Foster is the story of a sexy photographer who lands in hot water when her lens sees more than it should. Friday (Pam Greir) is an ex-model turned fashion photographer on assignment at the Los Angeles international airport. She is there photographing the arrival of billionaire Blake Tarr (Thalmus Rasulal) when three men disguised as security guards attempt to assassinate Blake. Unharmed in the attack, Friday moves on to her next assignment, shooting a new line of clothes from the glamorous fashion designer Madame Rena (Eartha Kitt). Trouble seems to follow Friday when Clorils Boston (Rosalind Miles), her friend and model, is stabbed to death at the photo shoot. Friday develops the film from the two shoots and notices the same shadowy men present at the scene of both crimes. She contacts her friend, detective Colt Hawkins (Yaphet Kotto), and the pair begins an investigation that leads them into a spider's nest of hardened criminals and corrupt politicians.
