Laura Mars is a famous photographer known for her bold clichés mixing sex and violence. One night, she experiences a kind of flash and sees the violent murder of one of her friends through the eyes of the killer. While, on the next days, three of her closest friends are also murdered, police inspector Neville starts to take Laura Mars seriously when she says that she has actually seen all the murders. But who's this murderer who kills his victims by bursting their eyes ?
