Sometimes there are no limits to what you'll do for the person you love. From the first moment Severin sees Wanda, draped in furs, he is captivated by her beauty, and her cruelty. He will do anything to please her, and soon desire becomes obsession as they enter into a world of domination, pleasure and pain to which it seems there are no boundaries. But as Wanda's fantasies become increasingly brutal and she takes another lover, their games begin to get dangerously out of control.
