This sick and depraved scenario begins when a blind sculptor and his mother kidnap a young woman and use her as a model. In the darkness of an abandoned warehouse, she suffers at the hands of the artist. Giving in to find an avenue of escape, she becomes caught up in a series of sadomasochistic games. After she eventually loses her sight and her mind, the sexual games become even rougher. Whips are replaced with knives, which give way to meat cleavers, as the demented girl begs to have her arms and legs cut off. The girl ends up cut down to size after the mother dies over a battle with her son. He contemplates suicide when he realizes the girl can no longer give him a hand in this macabre tale that gives new meaning to the expression "tortured artist."
