A modern misanthrope has countless grievances against the world. With malicious delight he plays the many noisy city sounds back on his recorder. He wants to end it all, but for religious reasons suicide is out. So he settles on getting a friend to do the job. But said friend has married into millions and not eager to throw it all away for friendship. And then there's people who keep getting in the way including a quack doctor and a man eating daughter in law. And so every step he takes leads to further frustration.
