Plot: This dark satire mocks Latin machismo and traditional middle class morals.

Archibaldo, an affluent but deeply disturbed man, has made numerous unsuccessful attempts to murder women. Murder, Archibaldo believes, will help him relive the erotic sensations he felt as a child upon witnessing the death of his governess -- a death he believes he caused with a magic music box. But so far Archibaldo has been unsuccessful, thanks to a bizarre series of coincidences that lead the women to their deaths before he can actually do the killing. Soon he's about ready to give up... but then Lavinia, an amoral model, comes along...
