A woman has died – taken her own life – and two men meet for an unusual condolence call. One man is the woman’s husband; the other her lover. The husband has brought a gun and threatens to kill the lover if he doesn’t provide the right answers to his questions. What emerges are two separate realities, two portraits of the same woman that could not be more different. Who was she, really? And what did she want from the two men?
