Scientists Lillian Reynolds and Michael Brace (Louise Fletcher and Christopher Walken) have been experimenting with their invention that can record sights, sounds, and feelings after the brain receives sensory messages. Michael uses the invention to get closer to his estranged wife Karen (Natalie Wood), and others begin to abuse it.
