Anne is bored. The chief highlight of her week is taking her son to piano lessons. One day, during one such lesson, the music is interrupted by a long, uncanny scream – A woman is shot dead by her husband at a nearby cafe frequented by men and whores. Shocked by the incident, and sensing this as a chance to break her humdrum, Anne does the unthinkable: Against all 1950s social convention, she begins to patronize the seedy café, taking her child along with her.
