A PERFECT CRIME, UNTIL YOU GET AWAY WITH IT
A woman hires a hit man to murder her fiancé, only to become
trapped in a web of lust and deceit. All the suspense of a film noir thriller, in a drama by contemporaries of Shakespeare.
In love with Alsemero while unwillingly betrothed to another man, Beatrice-Joanna plots the murder of her unwanted fiancé. To carry out the deed, she enlists her father’s servant, De Flores, a man she has always treated with contempt yet who secretly harbours an overwhelming desire for her.
She plans to reward him with gold; he, however, has a different form of payment in mind. The consequences prove fatal as Beatrice-Joanna struggles in a trap of her own making.
