There's something a little strange about Lewis Moffitt. In class, he is the only pre-med student unfazed by the hacking and dismemberment required in an autopsy. He shows no fear, but is terrorized by nightmares, and wakes his neighbors with blood-curdling screams. His behavior continues to unnerve both his friends and enemies and a scheme is hatched to determine the depths of Moffitt's bravery. Disguised as a fraternity prank, his classmates force Lewis to confront his lifelong internal battle, with horrifying results.
