The discovery of a severed human ear found in a field leads a young man on an investigation related to a beautiful, mysterious nightclub singer and a group of criminals who have kidnapped her child.
There's a lot of crazy stuff going on, but it's all very engaging and because of the beautiful cinematography, the brilliant use of colors and Lynch's skillful directing, the film always has a sort of 'sophisticated' feeling to it, even when it shows really vulgar stuff.
It's still got the elements that made Lynch famous, and his idiosyncrasies and quirks are plain for all to see, and there are even subtle nods to his other films (I thought so, anyway), but this is still a film that many audiences could get something from, I think.
