Movie Info

This innovative drama features three stars. Each star plays a dual role in two separate stories. Both stories contain love triangles which eventually interconnect. The first story chronicles the affair the wife of an obnoxious construction worker is having with a laborer. She cannot get enough of the working man, and even has sex with him in the same room where her children are sleeping. She and her lover kill her husband. The second tale features a notorious lawyer who sleeps with the wife of his mentor, also a tremendously successful lawyer. The two stories come together when the philandering lawyer must defend the laborer and his lover in court. When the older lawyer discovers that his wife has been fooling around with his protege, he has a fatal heart-attack. Meanwhile the laborer and his woman are sent to prison. The wealthy philanderers suffer no consequences.
