Synopsis

On a baking hot day, twenty-something Angela has told Harry she's leaving him for another man. As Angela folds into a suitcase the one thing she's taking from the shipwreck of their relationship - the wedding dress she never got to wear - Harry appears obsessed by just one point: the name of her new lover. While Harry probes and goads her, the flow of the narrative is interrupted by disturbing fractured images of blood gushing from a slashed throat. Finally Angela snaps. She flings a bottle of beer at Harry, missing him and smashing a full-length mirror on the wall. They watch in awe as their reflected image shatters into dozens of jagged, murderous shards - The drama has just begun.
