For Crazies Only

A young man is taken to a small town hospital after a suicide attempt. Rita is a beautiful Russian nurse taking care of him. In order to restore the young man's vitality, self-confidence and virility, the nurse spends a night full of tenderness and love with him. Rita's colleagues start teasing her. Yet, there is someone who considers Rita to be the source for the evil and takes action. Rita accepts her fate but the avenger becomes more brutal every time.
