A blind actor comes up with an elaborate scheme to murder his wife and her lover.
Cohen thought "it wasn't a bad movie" except for the casting of Boone; Cohen felt Boone's face was so distinctive the concept of the film did not work. Cohen says there was some talk of remaking the film years later as a vehicle for Andrea Bocelli but it did not proceed because of concerns over Bocelli's acting ability. The film was executive produced by Aaron Spelling.
Academic Tony Williams called the film "one of Cohen's most innovative works" despite the miscasting of Boone.
