Synopsis

A loving young wife Mary Malony is waiting till her husband - a policeman Patrick comes home from work. She is warming up his slippers at the fireplace. When her husband finally comes home, he tells her totally coldly, that he leaves her because he has had for some time an affair with another woman. The woman is shocked but she tries to gain her husband back. She wants to even bake a gigot for him. She brigs the frozen gigot to show him, but the man reacts rudely that he does not want any dinner because he is leaving. The woman hits him in affect with the gigot to his head. Then she goes shopping to be covered-up. After she comes back she pretends a panic when she finds her husband dead on the floor. Three police investigators, colleagues of her husband search in vain for the fatal weapon which killed the man. The woman invites them for the gigot and they are discussing even at the table what the offender has used to kill Patrick, if nothing is missing in the flat. Secretly, the woman is listening to them and watching with pleasure how they enjoy the roast gigot, which is on the table just in front of their eyes.
