Story of a nurse haunted by her troubled past. To hide the pain and escape from her memories, Sandra (Gwynyth Walsh) becomes a drug addict. She has a ready supply of drugs at the clinic she works at. Even falling in love with, and marrying, a patient does not help her. He has just come off heroin. But his troubles are just as deep down as her own, and when their baby is born, their troubles escalate into a drug induced nightmare.
