Horror drama from director Jennifer Lynch in which the protégé of a serial killer must decide whether to fulfil the role he has been groomed for or to break free. Tim (Eamon Farren) was a wide-eyed nine-year-old when along with his mother (Julia Ormond) he was kidnapped by Bob (Vincent D'Onofrio), a serial killer who poses as a taxi driver in order to capture his victims. Now a teenager, Tim has been kept on a chain by Bob and forced to witness the rape and murder of countless women. Over the years a bond of sorts has grown between the two men, with each reliant on the other for company, to the extent that Bob begins treating Tim as his heir. However, when push comes to shove, what path will the traumatised young man choose?
