Nick is an angry young man with a steroid dependency. Filled with chemical rage, he arrives alone in Salisbury and rapes Ben, a stranger.
Then, less than an hour later, he brutally murders a woman.

Ben can’t bring himself to tell his girlfriend, Dawn, that he’s been raped but he acts so strangely that she suspects that he’s the killer. Now it’s her turn to feel fear.
As Nick’s drug-fuelled fury rises, so does the body count. The police start to close in – but they’re closing in on Ben…
