Identical twin gynecologists, one suave the other introspective, share the same medical practice, the same apartment and the same women. When one special woman enters their lives, their bizarre bond is threatened for the first time, sending them into a whirlpool of sexual confusion, drugs and madness. "Crimes of the future" presents a drama in which Adrian Tripod tries to combat the malady that is killing girls before they reach the age of puberty.
