Twenty-five-year-old bodybuilder David Dane has never had an interest in drugs. When he arrives in a new town to begin a job as a personal trainer, David heads to Ontario Street to buy a raincoat. Little does he know that a dark shadow hangs over Ontario Street and that the woman in fishnet stockings who walks past him is about to introduce him to the dangerous world of drug addiction. After David invites Lilly Chicoine to have a drink with him, he soon realizes that he has unintentionally stepped into a place where dreams become nightmares and where the regulars roam in search of their next high. Even as he accompanies Lilly on a drug deal, David still does not know what he is doing, except that Lilly is the only woman who has paid attention to him in a long while. As darkness falls each night, David becomes entangled in an unpredictable web of illicit drugs and risk. But David has no idea that a serial killer is stalking the night in search of his own treasure-human flesh. As one prostitute after another is murdered, David takes it upon himself to become Lilly's protector. In this gripping thriller, a man must dance with the devil in order to save a woman nurturing a death wish. Only time will tell if he can save her before it is too late.
