In an idyllic American town, a young man returns home from a hospital where he visited his sick father. On his lawn, he finds a human ear. He reports it to the police, but also investigates on his own. Dorothy, a policeman’s daughter, helps him out. Soon, the young couple realizes the truth behind the idyllic middle class America, houses with picket fences and freshly mowed lawns. Jeffrey is entangled in the world of criminals and psychopaths.
