A pair of escaped mental patients looking to start life anew far away from the insanity of modern society settle down with a psychic farmer before their cover is blown in director C.W. Cressler's reckless tale of love and psychosis. Joe is a serial killer confined to the sterile white hallways of the Edgemare Mental Institution. After Joe makes the acquaintance of like-minded female murderess Beth, the pair quickly realizes that they share a unique and intense bond that can never be broken. After Joe escapes, Beth is left to fend for herself against the Edgemare staff, who torture her in an attempt to find out where Joe is hiding. Soon, Joe realizes that he cannot survive without Beth, so he heads back to Edgemare to break his lover free and release the other rampaging inmates in the process. Though the pair's initial bid to lie low on the farm of a kindly psychic named Boley finds them successfully eluding their captors for the time being, their cover is soon blown when it proves impossible for Joe and Beth to mend their murderous ways.
