The Canadian Academy for Erotic Inquiry researches the theories of the parapsychologist Luther Stringfellow. The story revolves around seven young parents who decide to have a novel form of brain surgery tested on themselves. In doing so, their ability to speak is taken away and replaced by the possibility of telepathic communication. A group of students who move in the shadow of the public controls the results and evaluates them. The experiment goes ahead and brings Stringfellow's theories into reality. Later in the film, people are instilled with aphrodisiacs and other drugs to expose their inner polymorphic perversity . The film ends with the "research objects" being isolated from one another. An unbearable enmity arises between the people and violence arises and escalates between them. As in so many cases, the experiment claims its victims. Two of the people who signed up for the experiment no longer endure this cruel situation and commit suicide.
