Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! is a love story… with strings attached. Recently released from the psychiatric ward that served as his home since he was orphaned as a boy, 23-year-old Ricki is ready to lead a normal life. He longs to settle down with a loving wife, a big family and a steady job.

For his bride, Ricki chooses Marina, a porn/B-movie queen with whom he spent a night during one of his many escapes from the institution. He hunts down Marina, and tries to convince her to be his wife. She is a bit reluctant, so he ties her up. Will this approach endear him to her?
