Antonio, a rich industrialist, married Laura, a beautiful young woman. When he can no longer satisfy her sexually, a short-term relationship is born with her stepson, Claudio, but it is enough to make her acquire the awareness of her personality and her rights. When Claudio leaves, she also leaves. Her husband searches for her, begs her to come back to him. The woman, who finally feels free, refuses. Antonio can not accept the prospect of being alone forever, and decides to kill her.

Antonio, I'm still here. I'm still waiting for you to tell me what I should do.
You're still asking me?
Of course I'm asking you. Weren't you the one who decided the lifestyle of this relationship? An empty life, full of superficialities. Those boring parties, full of whisky, cards and small-talk. All of us doing the same things. What we do, we do with forty other people. Never a moment for ourselves. To many people, that's not what a marriage is.
