In a futuristic metropolis, Fisher, a revered detective, returns from Cairo to sift through the clues surrounding the latest in a series of strange murders. In desperation, he turns to his mentor, a once brilliant criminal theoretician who has since gone mad, for advice on how to catch the killer. What he learns is a disturbing method of criminal osmosis which requires him to re-enact elements of the crime by merging souls with the murderer.
