Asylum authorities release Ricky (Antonio Banderas) out into the public, and he proceeds to demonstrate the error of the decision. He beelines it to the set of film director Maximo Espejo (Francisco Rabal), a wheelchair-bound lecher whose current Euro-horror film is about a hideously mutilated, masked muscleman. Ricky's an enamored fan of star Marina (Victoria Abril), a porn actress recovering from drug addiction with a 'straight' film; Ricky met and bedded her briefly on a previous escape from the looney bin. Convinced he has the solution to all her problems, Ricky kidnaps her, locks her in her apartment and sets out to prove that his love transcends simple fan adoration. His simple formula for romantic success is bondage and tender loving care in equal doses. Naturally, Marina's response is unpredictable.
