A writer who has been turned down by a publisher who apparently has been leading him on professionally (as a favor to the writer's wife with additional benefits) decides to kill the guy. He knows about the affair and now he stands over his dead adversary. The problem comes when he tries to erase all evidence. He can't remember where his fingerprints were left and becomes frantic with fear that he may have missed something. He has flashbacks to conversations with the victim and his own wife. While he is obsessing, his wife comes to the door, knocks, and leaves. He then has one more flashback to the actual murder when he strangle the guy because the gun he brought had no bullets. The story is mostly about a man falling apart at the seams. A fine acting job and a conclusion that makes it even more pathetic. Also, there is a wonderful closing shot.
