Lee is released from an institution, "cured" of mutilating herself. Back home with her dysfunctional family she soon starts again. She gets work as a secretary for a sadistic boss, E. Edward Gray, and falls for him. One day he spanks her and they develop a S&M relationship. One night she arrives at his house - after her alcoholic father is admitted to hospital - and after that he treats her "like a secretary". She misses the other relationship, and tries to restore it. Then he fires her. She is about to marry her fiance when she realises she loves him, and returns to his office where he tells her to sit at his desk and not move until his return. She doesn't. Her fiance and others try to talk her round but she sits there, unmoving, for days.

E. Edward Grey: Why do you cut yourself, Lee?
Lee: I don't know.
E. Edward Grey: Is it that sometimes the pain inside has to come to the surface, and when you see evidence of the pain inside you finally know you're really here? Then, when you watch the wound heal, it's comforting... Isn't it?
Lee: I... That's a way to put it.
