In a surreal soliloquy of passion and violence, a young woman tries to come to terms with having murdered a drifter. Her only listeners are two wild creatures, a lizard and a butterfly. Bewildered and fighting panic, she faces not only her sudden violent act but also the violence she has known all her life.
