Clarice Starling, a student at the F. B. I Academy, is summoned by Jack Crawford, Chief of the F.B.I's Behavioral Sciences, to interview famed killed Hannibal Lecter. As Starling travels to the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane, where Lecter is kept, she finds herself disturbed by her interviews with the serial killer. Lecter seems oddly kind to her, even as he is dangerous. He asks Starling personal questions but also reveals important information about Buffalo Bill, a serial killer currently sought by the F.B.I. As Clarice struggles with the personal problems Lecter's questions dredge up, she races to uncover the identity of Buffalo Bill and save the young woman he has trapped in his basement. Along the way, Starling encounters the misogyny of the F.B.I. and her own ambiguous feelings towards Jack Crawford.

Though in a cell, Dr. Hannibal Lecter is about to get his brain picked by FBI trainee, Clarice Starling. She needs help searching for the psychotic serial killer who has become known as "Buffalo Bill." She is trying to beat the clock before another victim is found. Working with Dr. Lecter could prove emotionally taxing for Starling. For every piece of information she receives about the case, she must respond honestly to his personal questions or she stands to lose his help.
