Plot Synopsis

Using re-enactments and first-person interviews with victims, family members and law enforcement, OBSESSION: DARK DESIRES chronicles the real-life stories of women who survived obsessive stalkers willing to do anything to satisfy their all-consuming infatuation. When boundaries are crossed, the lives of victim and stalker become tragically interlaced as dangerous compulsions replace rationality and leave the victim with nowhere to hide. With their safety and sanity at risk, victims fight to protect themselves and their families from an irrepressible torment. Premiering during the 11th annual National Stalking Awareness Month, each 60-minute episode of this series features a single victim, including: Sarah Pisan, who moved to Las Vegas in 1980 as a 19-year-old mother of three and received abusive beeper calls from an anonymous tormentor after a gas-station co-worker went missing; Kristy, a 24-year-old pregnant nurse, who began to fear for her life and that of her unborn child after inadvertently attracting the unwanted attention of a mysterious person while she was selling her car; and Mary McIntyre, who lived in Concord, CA in the mid-1990s and survived an 18-month campaign of unwanted calls and advances from Jociel Bulawin, a man she fired from the family business.

In the Season 2 opener, "Unlucky Seven," Heather, a grocery store barista, has just began dating her most recent hire, Arturo. But as time goes by, Arturo is unable to hide his dark side.
