Synopsis / Plot
The FBI track down Carl Stargher, a serial killer who abducts women and then drowns them and bleaches their bodies. But just as they arrive Stargher has a schizophrenic seizure and lapses into a coma. However Stargher has placed his latest victim in a tank in a remote location which is timed to flood and drown her within 40 hours. As time ticks away the FBI in desperation turns to a group of psychologists who have devised a unique procedural method which allows someone to enter the mental landscape of a patient. Therapist Catherine Deane has so far only used the process to communicate with autistic children but agrees to enter Stargher’s mind. But once there she finds herself in a disturbed surreal terrain where she is in danger of losing contact with her own perception of reality altogether and being taken over by Stargher.
