Ruth Halbfass is the wife of a wealthy factory owner. The husband, blinded with the luxury of his house with a swimming pool, does not notice that his wife is cheating on him with their daughter’s art teacher. Even though the daughter is aware of her mother’s adultery she is in a phase when such things do not bother her. Soon the art teacher hires murderers to help him get rid of the problematic husband; however that is only the beginning of strange events that will lead to a surprising ending.
