Tony, who spends his days working in a London auction house surrounded by valuable works of art, enlists the help of underworld figure Brendan and his henchmen Nick and Philip, to steal a painting by Goya. But things don't quite go according to plan - Tony is left concussed and Brendan and his associates are left with a worthless poster reproduction. Tony claims he has amnesia, and swears that he's hidden the original Goya somewhere for safekeeping, but can't remember where.
After trying to beat the information out of Tony, to no avail, it strikes Brendan that hypnotherapy might be the answer, and takes Tony to Harley Street hypnotherapist, Sarah Lamb, randomly picked out of the Yellow Pages.
Sarah finds out exactly what's going on, and rather than shop Tony and the gang to the police, she decides that she wants to be in on the scam. Sarah's skills as a hypnotherapist enable her to manipulate minds and memories to her own advantage.
The tension - sexual and otherwise - mounts as the boundaries between the real and the imagined, the obvious and the hidden, the genuine and the fake become increasingly blurred as the search through Tony's subconscious continues, and the action builds to a nail-biting climax.
