Suddenly something terrible deflects with violence the course of events. One by one, all occasional lovers occasional that Lisa met in the club, are killed in the mode most sadistic and brutal by a mysterious and murderess a mystery who hides in the shadow.
The death spiral huddles more and more around, and now she feels like a hunted animal. She has a crucial choice: to call the police, but like this she reveal to everybody her unmentionable secrets, or get by on her own? Lisa chose the second way, and things take rapidly a turn for the worse.
A thought floods over her: Roy, one of her partners is still alive and he is unwitting about what it might happen him.
Lisa feels duty bound to inform him. The man, informed about the risk who is running, doesn’t want to escape and he offers himself to help Lisa, in an hard attempt to discover who is behind these ferocious crimes.
