In 1957, after escaping a well-deserved death sentence, the unhinged Dorothy Yates was committed to a mental institution for her sickening and disturbing crimes, along with her acquiescent husband, Edmund. Now, almost twenty years later, the deranged couple has settled in an isolated farmhouse somewhere in Haslemere, Surrey, where a seemingly rehabilitated Dorothy uses her peaceful maternal figure to tell the fortunes of her young and unsuspecting clientele. However, as someone keeps delivering mysterious brown-paper parcels to her, it's only natural for Dorothy to relapse into madness, aching, once more, for a blood-drenched crash-course in surgery. Is, indeed, old Dorothy back?
