Sinopsis

Una joven secretaria, tras cometer un robo, se marcha de la ciudad y conduce durante horas, parando para descansar en un pequeño motel de carretera regentado por un joven llamado Norman. Todo parece normal y tranquilo en el apartado motel y en la casa de al lado en la que viven Norman y su madre pero, mientras está en la ducha, la joven es asesinada salvajemente a cuchilladas.
