Ondanks het nauwe lichamelijke contact van haar job, voelt styliste / seriemoordenares Claire zich eenzaam en overbodig. Een gemis dat ze opvult met 'scalps’' souvenirs van haar klanten. Dan leert ze aanstaande bruid Olivia kennen. Een perfecte vrouw. De perfecte vriendin? Zegt Claire haar dubbelleven eindelijk vaarwel?
