This experimental film alternates between symbolic depictions of events from the life of notorious Mormon murderer Gary Gilmore and sustained shots of barren landscapes and beehives. Career criminal Gilmore (Matthew Barney) murders two men and, after being apprehended, demands to be put to death by firing squad. The execution absolves Gilmore of his sins, and he enters a hive-like heaven, where he begins a search for the elusive Harry Houdini (Norman Mailer), who may be his grandfather.
