After being fitted with prosthetic hands, Vernon begins to experience strange sensations and realizes that the hands belonged to a murderer.

As Vernon struggles to come to terms with his new hands and their sinister past, he becomes increasingly paranoid and begins to suspect those around him. His girlfriend, Francie, and his doctor, Dr. Benbow, try to help him through his trauma, but Vernon’s obsession with the hands and the crimes they committed leads him down a path of madness.
