Though sisters, Lori and Gloria couldn’t be any more different. The epitome of success, fashion plate Gloria is a reporter for the local news… and every man’s wet dream. Lori is unimpressive and unemployed. Needless to say, their relationship is strained.

But when Gloria disappears while investigating a series of kidnappings, Lori heads to the small town of Tiny Pines to retrieve her missing sister. Faced with reluctant lawmen and frightened townsfolk, Lori’s about to give up the search… until she is kidnapped as well.

Abducted by a mysterious madman obssessed with dolls, Lori finds herself locked in a cage and subjected to horrific procedures. Will she break free in time to save her own life. And that of her sister…?
