A distressing tale of a married couple with major relationship problems. The wife of three children has a mental illness and finds coping with real life difficult. The husband, a rough and crude working man, has trouble dealing with his wife as well as controlling his own emotions. What follows is an emotional roller coaster ride throughout the movie.
