Synopsis:

Agnes Poelzl is a vicious psychopath. She lives in a state of dreamy contemplation, her powerful mind twisted by insanity. Her talent, discipline and focus are impressive, but her desires have led her down a path of violence and murder.

Mike Mercer is a private investigator researching a cold case. When his investigation leads him to Agnes, he has no idea what he’s getting himself into. Agnes seduces, captures, and locks Mike in her basement. She then begins a regimen of brutal psychological torture meant to brainwash him into a state of total compliance. Chris Thomas is a computer technician who finds himself dating Agnes. He gets the sense that something is off with her, but her forwardness sweeps him off his feet. She is surprisingly tender with him at first, until she grows bored. Agnes then drags Chris into her nightmare.

Agnes, Mike and Chris form a bizarre family, with Agnes as the twisted matriarch lording over her captives with regal authority. Mike struggles to keep his soul as Agnes’s willpower overwhelms him, while Chris begs to stay alive. No matter how grim the outlook is, Agnes always makes things worse. But as her crimes escalate, Agnes finds it increasingly difficult to avoid the police.
