Largely English spoken psycho­log­ical thriller, labelled a film noir, which is set in a bleak housing estate during a hot summer. The life of insur­ance agent Peter and his wife Marian, a stew­ardess, changes abruptly when a British couple moves in across the street. Peter is impressed by the myste­rious and beau­tiful Laura, whose older partner Ron, like Marian, spends a lot of time abroad. After losing his job, Peter’s visits to Laura become ever more frequent. It turns out that Laura’s seem­ingly perfect marriage has a dark side and by then Peter’s rela­tion­ship with Marian has also cooled. Peter and Laura feel so strongly attracted to each other that they devise an inge­nious plan to get rid of Ron. What follows is a tale of intrigue and sexual intimidation.
