Film details


Henry Spencer lives a quiet life in a one-roomed flat where he indulges his fondness, not to say fetish for insects and dirt. His bliss is disrupted by a forced marriage to a pregnant girlfriend: a premature, inhuman 'baby' is born, and Henry is left alone to face the trials of single parenthood and indulge his obsessive fantasies.
