Synopsis / Plot
Somewhere in the future, the Canadian Academy for Erotic Inquiry is investigating the theories of para-psychologist Luther Stringfellow. Seven young adults volunteer to submit to a form of brain surgery that removes their power of speech but increases their power for telepathic communications. An unseen group of students observes the results. As the experiment progresses, Stringfellow's theories are borne out. Later, aphrodisiacs and various drugs are introduced to the subjects to expose an inherent 'polymorphous perversity'. In the end, they are isolated from each other, provoking antagonism and violence between them, resulting in two suicides.
