Synopsis / Plot
Top surgeon Dr. Nick Cavanaugh (Julian Sands) grew up at the mercy of his mocking, sensual, and neglectful mother. As an adult, he fantasizes about women who entice, taunt, and reject him and finds the epitome of cold calculation in Helena, a one-night stand who wants nothing more to do with him. When a serious car accident leaves Helena unconscious, he takes advantage of the situation by bringing her into his home--and using his surgical skills to amputate her arms and legs. Then Nick sets her up in a box as an object of his adoration. But even boxing Helena won't get Nick Cavanaugh what he wants...and he has to keep upping the ante in a cruel psychological and physical battle.
