Kimberly was only a teenager when she contracted influenza and died…almost. A doctor from outside of her town stole her body and turned her into a monster. He used the parts of other dying girls to stick together his perfect woman, but the girls didn’t just die when he disassembled them. The conscious of each girl invaded Kimberly’s mind when their body parts were sown onto her. After the hands of a girl named Lillian begin to rot, the doctor murders a beautiful piano player for replacements. This young woman refuses to allow Kimberly access to her musical ability inciting the wrath of the doctor and causing problems for the whole group of trapped, disembodied minds.
