A research doctor trying to map infant brains, Genny is in need of a particularly difficult to obtain specimen – the skulls of deceased children. On the verge of giving up on her pursuit, packages from a secret admirer begin to appear with the specimens that will save her career. A romantically, disturbing who-dunnit transpires as Genny and her assistant Monica try to decipher which of Genny’s recent trysts might have fallen this “madly” in love with her.
