The shock of nearly dying from an overdose gives Sandra the strength to seek help from a drug rehabilitation clinic.
However Roffe now turns his attentions to her sister Jannika (Tove Appelqvist). It's not long before he seduces Jannika, introduces her to drugs and as with her sister the resulting domination of his power leads her to becoming a prostitute.
