In this grim, surreal Australian horror movie, the union between two obsessive-compulsive people ends in gruesome tragedy. The control-freak husband collects weird things and protects them with an ingenious alarm system involving strategically-placed guillotines. Soon after marrying his wife, he refused to allow her to continue taking tap-dancing lessons. She loved her dancing and shows her resentment by ceaselessly tapping and hoofing her way around the house. To further spite her spouse, she rekindles an old flame. Trouble really begins when a pair of crooks begin making plans to purloin the husband's collection.
