As a teen, Ann lives with her brutish Uncle Fred and downtrodden Aunt Ella. Ann is abducted and nearly raped by an escaped convict, but is rescued at the last moment. In college, Ann dates Jeff but has a flashback to her earlier ordeal and panics when he kisses her, earning a campus reputation as “the human icicle!” Ann and young professor Owen fall in love but she can’t overcome her fear of men. When they’re trapped in a forest during a storm, Ann tells Owen her story and discovers her repressed fear is now gone. She can now reciprocate his love.
