Plot & Details
A love triangle is the basis of this chilly romantic drama. The story centers on an engineer who marries a recently widowed woman. The trouble begins when the new groom begins an affair with his bride's comely daughter. Though the wife knows about it, she holds her peace. Time passes and she finds that the triangle has become tiresome and so asks her husband to get rid of the girl. The somewhat dutiful husband obeys and begins looking for a suitable suitor for the girl. Unfortunately, no sooner does he succeed than he gets terribly jealous and picks a fight with the girl's new love. It is a terribly battle and the husband ends up seriously injured and bedridden. Ironically, both women lovingly tend to his recovery. At the story's end, a group of officials enter the engineer's mansion to give him a special award for his good work. Unfortunately, as they enter, three gunshots ring out from the bedroom.
