Alice Walker (Rosemary Gore) was just a young girl when her parents were violently taken from her by the notorious Black Rose killer. In the years following her devastating trauma, young Alice would often find herself being shuffled between an endless array of foster homes and psychiatric institutions. Now, as the twentieth anniversary of her parents' deaths draws near, an outbreak of bizarre murders leads the frightened Alice to believe that the Black Rose Killer has returned to claim her life, and finally carry out the mission he failed to accomplish two decades ago. Could it be that the whole latest incarnation of the Black Rose Killer is simply a delusional product of Alice's scarred psyche, or could it be that the girl who once narrowly avoided the clutches of a killer is actually about to come face to face with the nightmare that has plagued her for nearly twenty years?
