Three monologues intermingle, each character explains what drove them to murder. One man set fire to his house after finding his wife cheating on him in their bed. A woman (a teacher) gives poison apples to all of her students because she just can’t stand them anymore. Another man, physically abused by his lover, ultimately crushes his head with his boot.
