Synopsis

1957. Plainfield, Wisconsin. The kind folks here think Ed Gein is just a shy, eccentric farmer. But Ed knows differently. Haunted by visions of his late mother Augusta, a devout woman whom he considers a saint, Ed has already become a prolific graverobber and amateur anatomist. Now, with the ghost of his mother compelling him, Ed can no longer resist the allure of Plainfield's women, and his fierce desire to experience a real, live kill -- or two.
