Following a fire in their barn, a childless couple find a teenager suffering an epileptic seizure in their country home. They take him in, oblivious to the certainty that he has set the fire, encouraging him to paint and seek medical attention which they finance. Moreover, the common-law

adoption leads to the youth making love to the wife, impregnating her and then, when she is about to give birth, murdering her and her husband. A mindless, brutal film.
