Paul Sharpe (Winston Rekert) is a successful commercial television director with what seems to be an exciting career and an attractive, loving family. He is also frustrated and restless despite years of therapy. He still feels humiliated by the failure of his movie career and begins to look for ways to expand his horizons by following the occult. He meets Janus (Karen Black), a mysterious dancer who awakens his interest in out-of-body travels. After the police begin investigating him, Paul soon realises he might not be in control of his new found 'freedom'. Janus is out to take over Paul - body and soul.
