SAN DIEGO–When Brad and Janet, a clean-cut young couple from the suburbs, get caught with a flat in the middle of nowhere, they seek help from the devilishly charming transvestite Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter. What they discover in his mysterious laboratory is a time warp of sexual and scientific possibilities – and, perhaps, true love.
