A collection of three darkly-brilliant one-act plays told in the form of personal accounts. A woman reveals a dark, tragic secret about her relationship with her junior high school teacher; a high-flying business man confides to a stranger in a hotel room; a couple recounts the same night but in drastically different ways.
