The chief highlight of Anne’s week is taking her son to piano lessons. One day, during one such lesson, the piano playing is interrupted by a long, uncanny scream. A woman is shot dead by her husband at a nearby cafe. Shocked by the incident, and sensing this as a chance to break her humdrum, Anne does the unthinkable in her social world. She begins to patronize the seedy café, taking her child along with her.
