Plot & Details
Maria Beatty directs this period thriller that blends horror with the drama of forbidden love to tell the tale of a young burn victim who enters into a sordid affair with her sultry nurse. Beautiful Lucille lives with her domineering father and great aunt in a remote mansion nestled deep in the countryside. She's about to depart for college, and when she tells her surgeon father that she intends to study poetry rather than medicine, he insists that she stick with the sciences. Feeling as if there's no way out of her predicament, Lucille rifles through her father's lab and attempts suicide. But her efforts end in failure, leaving her with third degree burns on her face, and tissue loss around her cheek and nose. Desperate to treat Lucille but unwilling to take her to the hospital, her father hires a private nurse to watch over her around the clock. As time passes Lucille and her nurse develop powerful feelings for one another, and when the bandages are removed, they enter into a passionate affair.
