A deep exploration of the famous "shower scene" in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. Many directors, writers, historians and other interview subjects (including directors Peter Bogdanovich and Karyn Kusama, film historian David Thompson, editor Walter Murch, Jamie Lee Curtis and Oz Perkins (children of actors Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins), and Marli Renfro, Janet Leigh's nude body double in the scene) share their historical understanding and critical observations about this seminal moment in American movies.
