Michael Ryan (Paul Conway) runs a hotel with his dominating, bed-ridden mother. His inadequacy with women forces him to arrange clandestine meetings with promiscuous women. When one of these dates backfires he is found drunk and unconscious by one of his hotel cleaners Julia (Fiona Horsey). Desperate for money, Julia pretends that she has slept with her boss and is pregnant so that she can bribe him to pay her off. However, the hen-pecked owner falls in love with Julia. He draws her into his web of Sick Love until he discovers her lie and embarks on a murderous frenzy.
