A singer, Marc Stevens, loses his way in the woods. His car breaks down near Paul Bartel's closed inn. Marc spends the night there and, the next morning, asks Bartel to call a garage mechanic. Meanwhile, Marc decides to wander in the forest where he can observe some local people who seem, to say the least, degenerated. Back at Bartel's inn, Marc finds out that Bartel hasn't even tried to call the car repair shop and is on the verge of burning his van.
In fact, Bartel got mad a few months before when his wife Gloria left him. Now, he knocks out Marc and puts one of Gloria's dresses on him. Marc tries to escape but is quickly recaptured by Bartel. During the night, Bartel's degenerated neighbours attack the inn in order to kidnap Marc and also abuse him.
