Two men fall in love as they become addicted to electricity in Sean Abley's Socket.

The men find others who share their passion and in a cult-like fashion they feast on electricity together. Soon their addiction grows beyond their control. The men find themselves desperate to satisfy their cravings for greater voltage, eventually leading to murder.

The film is both dark and humorous. And includes some high-voltage sex scenes.

In director/screenwriter Lou Peterson's In The Blood a college jock comes-of-age as he discovers a foretelling gift when in the presence of handsome men.
