Interspersed with therapy sessions, this implausible story of murder and madness centers on a woman turned psychotic and eventually, homicidal. Monique (Florence Giorgetti) is seeing a psychiatrist because she is vaguely disturbed by something she cannot remember from her childhood. After she meets and marries artist Richard Lewis (John Ferris), she is also upset that she has not gotten pregnant. Then one day she discovers that her husband is having an adulterous affair -- with another man. In combination with her childhood trauma independently discovered by her therapist, this sends her completely over the edge, with fatal results to the gay community.
