Ezra Cobb is a quiet, middle-aged man, who lives a rather solitary life caring for his ailing mother, a religious fanatic who raised him to be a misogynist.

After a year of floundering and not knowing how to live without her, Ezra finally snaps under the pressure and goes to the cemetery to dig up her corpse. But a year of being underground has taken its toll, so to “mend” his still “ailing” mother, Ezra resorts to digging up corpses in an effort to reconstruct her decaying body. But finally having his mother back does nothing to ease Ezra’s loneliness, and as his delusions grow ever more severe he soon sets his sights on living, breathing victims.
