Summary, etc.: Lazarus is an extremely religious man who is broken hearted after his wife leaves him for his own brother. Rae is the town slut, apparently afflicted with the "disease" of uncontrollable nymphomania. After a night of hard partying and sleeping around, Rae, is beaten up and left by the roadside near Lazarus' house. Lazarus takes her in and chains her to his radiator while trying to "cure" her insatiability. Eventually, the two become friends and help each other recover from their extremes of lust and piety to become more balanced individuals.
