After a bizarre encounter at a party, a jazz saxophonist is framed for the murder of his wife and sent to prison, where he inexplicably morphs into a young mechanic and begins leading a new life.
The song that plays as Fred/Pete makes love to Renee/Alice is "Song to the Siren" by This Mortal Coil. David Lynch originally wanted to use this song in Blue Velvet (1986), for the scene where Jeffrey and Sandy dance at the party, but at the time, he couldn't get the rights to the song. However, Lynch found the song so haunting, that he thought of it again for this movie.
