Alex and his friends are troubled youth. They spend their nights drinking drug-laced milk, beating beggars, raping women, and fighting rival gangs. However, his violent ways abruptly end after a betrayal by his cohorts, and he finds himself incarcerated. Alex becomes the test subject for an experimental technique that hopes to correct violent behaviors. After being released, the meek and humbled Alex tries to adjust to a world that still views him with skepticism. He is shunned by his parents, beaten by his old friends, and left for dead. He seeks shelter at the home of a former victim, who plots to kill Alex in revenge. His plans, however, fail, and the hospitalized Alex's experimental procedure is reversed, regressing him to his former, violent self.
