All is fair in love? Even murder? That’s the question posed by this funny suspense comedy about a love triangle in a Howard Johnson Motor Inn. In the first scene the wife and her lover plot to murder the husband. In the second scene the wife and her husband reconcile and of course plot to murder the lover. The third scene has the husband and the wife’s lover finally concluding that the wife is the cause of all of this mess and so… they plot to murder the wife. You’ll have to see how it turns out!!!
