Dr. Ethan Powell, an anthropologist, is in Africa studying apes when he is lost for two years. When he is found, he kills 3 men and puts 2 in the hospital. The psychiatrist Theo Caulder wants to take up the task of trying to get Dr. Powell to speak again and maybe even stand judgment at a trial for his release from prison of mental cases. Along the way, Caulder has to deal with also helping the mental patients that are being abused and neglected. In this process Theo learns a few things about himself and life, and so does Dr. Powell.
