Synopsis

Marco operates a modern chicken breeding factory financed by his beautiful but domineering wife, Anna. He visits a local brothel to reduce his sadistic tensions, until Anna's orphan niece Gabri comes to live with them. He has an affair with her and tells her of his plan to kill Anna. Gabri, however, is secretly in love with art designer Mondaini, and the two lovers plan to kill both Anna and Marco so that Gabri will inherit the chicken farm. An anonymous letter tips off Anna to her husband's antics with the town's prostitutes. Assisted by Gabri, she disguises herself as a prostitute and goes to find Marco. At the motel, Gabri and Mondaini murder Anna, phone the police, and wait for the authorities to arrest Marco. Their plan backfires, however, when Marco takes the body to his factory. While attempting to dump it into a chicken food machine, he falls in and is killed. The police arrive and find Gabri and Mondaini standing guiltily near Anna's corpse.
