An unusual dummy story

Robert Muligan made this weird episode telling the story of a man working on dummies; which ones, you may ask...

Guess, the dummies made for the atomic tests in the middle of Nevada, and put in some tiny houses, as would be real persons. Dummies, only dummies. The man in question has serious arguments with his wife and decides to get rid of her. Do you follow where I lead you...

I don't want to tell more, but it's very unusual, and not foreseeable. And so surprising too. An evil plot, I have never seen in any picture. A gem I am happy to have discovered.

I hope to find many others like this one. I cross my fingers.
