The film concerns Helen Lyle and her friend Bernadette are both working on their masters thesis. The topic they are focusing on is the existence of urban legends. They are breaking down why they exist and what purpose they serve. In their research efforts, the ladies come across a prevalent belief in the existence of a killer called The Candyman. Bernadette and Helen initially discount the existence of The Candyman as nothing more than an urban legend invented to help people cope with the horrors of day-to-day life in the projects of Chicago. But after digging a little deeper, Helen becomes increasingly convinced that The Candyman is real.
