Travelling out to the country to stay with her friends the Holts late one night, Nicola Stevens is panicked to find herself being pursued by the suspicious-looking man who had been on the train with her. The next morning, the Holts return after being delayed overnight in a breakdown and find the living room streaked in blood and Nicola bruised and in a state of shock. Nicola is admitted to a mental institution, where she gradually recovers her wits but is too traumatised to help the police identify her attacker. Returning to stay with the Holts, she is alarmed when she believes she sees the man once again on the train, and then again at a nearby egg farm. Even though the police insist that the serial rapist has been caught, Nicky becomes obsessed with the notion that he is still at large and takes mattersto her own hands, with alarming consequences.
