    Insecure rich man, winston thorpe, is psychologically abusive to his wife, indigo. He buys "the imperial egg" at an auction for $20 million, outbidding "Santiago", a rich Argentinian who flirts with Thorpe's wife after the auction. Thorpe hires a private detective to tail his wife for evidence about the affair between Santiago & Indigo. The wife immediately identifies the PI, approaches him, tells the PI that Santiago is gay, befriends the PI, and enters into a plot to leave Thorpe, stealing the egg before leaving. During this time, scenes with Rafael, the Thorpes' gardener, putting a needle into Indigo's arm (multiple occasions, insinuating a drug problem) are interlaced. Country Club acquaintances, who have seen Indigo having dinner with the PI alert Thorpe to the relationship between Indigo & the PI. That, plus Thorpe having previously found the PI's dog tags in Indigo's bedroom, convince Thorpe of the affair. Thorpe hires another investigator to put a spycam in Indigo's bedroom, which records the PI & Indigo engaged in sex. Thorpe takes a trip to rome, but goes home early, & sees the video (no audio). Indigo insists on leaving the egg, has the PI pick up the passports they set up previously, after which the PI gets attacked by someone he owes money to, & loses the passports, next scene is Thorpe & the PI both at the station, being investigated for the death of Indigo, during which it is revealed that a painting, a dagger, and the egg have been stolen. Both are let go for insufficient evidence, Thorpe first, who follows the PI to his house. then Thorpe goes home & digs a grave on his own property, returns to the PI's house, kills him, & takes his body back to the mansion & buries it. The police show up after Thorpe has showered, eventually finding the body, bloody clothes, and a bag with needles and blood bags in it. Then scenes are displayed in which Thorpe deduces that Rafael helped Indigo take bags of blood (not giving drugs), & frame the PI and Thorpe both.
