Crazed plastic surgeon Dr. Reynolds (Robert Lansing) attempts to collect a $5 million inheritance by reconstructing a go-go dancer's face in the image of his missing daughter, Jane (Judith Chapman). Having previously murdered his wife and his daughter's boy friend--the incidents that drove

Jane away--Reynolds plans to show off his "daughter" at family functions and to the trustees of his father's estate, the bulk of which was left to Jane. Before long the dancer-daughter begins bestowing sexual favors on the insane surgeon, adding an uncomfortable air of incest to the bizarre

proceedings. Shot in Georgia on a $400,000 budget, the film is hampered somewhat by the lack of funds, but it does manage to deliver a few genuine surprises.
