In an insane asylum in Paris, 1807, an infamous author and sexual maven Marquis de Sade (Rush) is treated for insanity by a doctor (Caine) hired by de Sade's wife. A priest (Phoenix) is asked to meet with de Sade, which sets the two (doctor and priest) into a battle of wills over the debate of morality and sin.
