Whatever else turns out to be real or false in this film, the antipathy that the office-worker therein has for his overbearing wife is clearly real. Everything else is up for grabs, including the two men whom he discovers in the house when he gets home from work. They claim that he hired them to murder his wife, but he doesn't remember it at all. When his wife comes home, the discussions and arguments continue, culminating in the apparent murder of his wife and the office worker being arrested for it, along with the two hired hit men. Then, he discovers that this whole scenario has been arranged by his wife to keep him distracted while preparations for a surprise birthday party are being made. Then the clerk discovers that the party, too, may have been an imaginary product of someone's dreams.
