Trama: Felicia è un'adolescente giunta in Inghilterra dall'Irlanda per rintracciare il fidanzato: è incinta, ha pochi soldi e sa soltanto che lui lavora presso una fabbrica di tosaerba nella periferia di Birmingham. Durante la sua ricerca, incontra Hilditch, un ometto che, con i suoi modi apparentemente bonari, riesce a conquistarne la fiducia. In realtà, Hilditch è un pericoloso psicopatico, vittima di traumi infantili - è ossessionato dal ricordo della madre, conduttrice di un programma televisivo di cucina, che lo costringeva ad apparire davanti alle telecamere - che ha già ucciso molte ragazze fuggite di casa. A Felicia racconta di sua moglie gravemente ammalata (in realtà non è sposato), e le ruba tutti i risparmi, facendo sì che la ragazza debba affidarsi completamente a lui: finge di aiutarla nella ricerca del fidanzato ma, persuasala di non poterlo più ritrovare, la convince ad abortire. Quando, alla fine, l'uomo si appresta a ucciderla viene improvvisamente colto da un crollo emotivo che lo porta alla decisione di liberarla e di togliersi la vita
