The nightmare world of a virgin's dreams becomes the screen's shocking reality!

Carol, a Belgian manicurist living with her sister, Helen, in a London flat, is simultaneously attracted and repulsed by sex. Carol's awkward feelings towards men are worsened by her sister's affair with a married man. When the pair go away on holiday, leaving Carol alone in the apartment, her moments of catalepsy and hallucination increase and deepen into madness.
