The year is 1751 and at the age of twenty Tristan Hart leaves home to study medicine at the hospital of St. Thomas in London. Mr. Hart is also a psychotic. He is obsessed with the nature of pain and medically preventing it, but his equally strong and much harder to control obsession is with causing it.
