The host of a fictional crime anthology show introduces tonight’s episode; the entire film is staged as this retro prologue to a murder mystery — a mystery that turns out to be far more personal than its teller would have us believe.

Inspired by the mustachio’d, baritone-voiced, suit-and-ties of old (namely Vincent Price on PBS Mystery), this short wears its polished exterior as a means of covering up the nastier emotions bubbling under its character’s own costume.
