Plot Summary: Adrian Clay seems to be just an ordinary 27 year old teacher in L.A. No one knows that he is actually a mass murderer known as the "Blind Man" who seeks out and murders young male prostitutes at night. One night, one of the young prostitutes, 14 year old Lawerance, a victim of a gang-ruled prostitution ring, is a witness to one of Adrian's murders. Adrian is sure that he will have to kill the boy since he saw him committing the crime but before Adrian can set any plans, Lawerance tracks him down first and faces the disturbed teacher. Adrian and Lawerance form a taboo love relationship, and the chances that they will be left in peace is very slim.
