Alice White has a secret: once a month she turns into a wolf. Her psychiatrist doesn't believe her, but is already writing a book about her case. And is her new lover in danger?
Alice comes to herself cowering naked in her garden after a wild night. Later she hears that a dead body, apparently savaged by a dog, has been found in a London street. The conclusion is obvious to her. So as Alice and her lover Dan become closer, she decides to reveal the terrible truth about what occurs in her cellar.
No one can accept Alice for what she really is. Psychotherapist Luther finaly admits the wolf is real, but his obsession with her leads to his downfall. Escape to Dr Garth's wild Scottish pack seems her only remaining option.
