A psychotic serial killer code named 'doll face' mysteriously ends up dead. Years later, the sleeping evil is unintentionally awakened by a feminist cult (velvet widows) as they harness stolen embryos with a bid to create a perfect female child.

He soon finds comfort in the arms of Cindy Valentine but is unaware of the dark secrets in her past. Things soon get complicated when a work associate, constable Sarah Mattews dangles the proverbial carrot before his eyes. A love triangle is built, with the inspector right at the center of it.
