Biology major Nicholas makes a major medical breakthrough when he manages to chemically re-animate a dead mouse. He spends the weekend with some friends at a lake, but before he can tell his long-time crush that he loves her, she drowns. All Nicholas needs to bring her back is massive amounts of oxytocin, a neurochemical that is produced in humans when they're sexually excited. Nicholas hires a hooker and kills her to extract the chemical, but when he learns that women in childbirth secrete even higher amounts of oxytocin, he contemplates the unthinkable.
