Set against a backdrop of the streets of Lower Manhattan, this low-budget underground film by Eric Mitchell concerns a theater troupe working on an unorthodox production of Jean Cocteau's Orpheus. Tragedy strikes when the lead actress dies, and as each of the cast members delves into their past to try to figure out what exactly happened, each comes under suspicion of murder. As the complicated storyline snakes its way through 80 minutes of changes, the central fact of the actress' death almost recedes from memory.
