Patrick ( the writer) soon starts to realize something is odd about Holly. As he spends more and more time with her things heat up and he falls for her. Not knowing that she is as crazy as her brother Fred, who is in a physiciatric hospital after killing his own father. And when Patrick finds out that Holly's mother was murdered and she was the prime suspect, he starts doubting her sanity.
