Standing up to her husband for the first time, Mrs. White summons the courage to insist that their daughter be allowed to go to the church dance. But Mr. White is having a bad day, and after being called a cockroach by his boss, Mr. White decides to pass the sentiment on to his wife by turning her into a bug. To save herself, Mrs. White transforms their daughter into a roach, continuing the vicious cycle of absurd violence.
