What is your story about?

The story is wrought on the grounds of a devilish murder plan, involving hate and revenge and a family fortune. Twists abound through the narrative, the denouement being revealed in one flash of action and which is clever enough to elude most all educated viewers. Scenes of sex and violence are used in the appropriate context to the plot and characters’ aims and not added in gratuitously.
