Customs Officer Tina is known for her extraordinary sense of smell. It's almost as if she can sniff out the guilt on anyone with something to hide. But when Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time. Tina can sense Vore is hiding something that she can't identify. To make matters worse, she feels a strange attraction to him. As Tina develops a special bond with Vore and discovers his true identity, she also realizes the truth about herself.
