Raped on her wedding night, a bride must take her own vengeance.
Dave and Jill Wade come to Pennsylvania, the ink still wet on their marriage license, expecting three weeks of lakeside honeymooning bliss. All is lovely until gunshots shatter their first night together. Killers have come for the man in the next cabin, and afterward they decide to silence the happy couple, battering Dave and dragging his virgin bride into the dead man's bedroom.
The Wades say nothing to the police, but afterward take a second set of vows: death for the men who ruined their honeymoon. They set out for New York, ready to take on the city's mobsters as they consecrate their marriage in blood.
