Synopsis

Patricia Carroll arrives in the country to meet Mrs Trefoil, the mother of her fiancé, who recently died in the USA. Out of politeness she agrees to stay the night. Slowly Mrs Trefoil' s attitude towards her guest changes. She begins addressing her as a child, asking intimate questions, making impossible demands and when Patricia tries to leave she is imprisoned in the cellar. There follows her enforced degradation and depersonalisation as she is cleansed in preparation for her ritual killing to join her fiancé for a marriage made in Heaven.
