"I hate my life! I hate my wife! Maybe I should just kill her."
A man's melancholy vision of his wasted life and how he blames his wife for it all.
"It's a beautiful day and I hate my wife. We're playing Scrabble. That's how bad it is. I don't think I've spoken to anyone except my wife since Thursday morning. On Thursday morning I spoke to the milkman."
An effective twist at the end of the film rewards the patient viewer.
