One man’s meat is another man’s poison, and Chicago’s crime boss Arturo Ui smells an opportunity.

Something prevents the guests from leaving. Time passes. An entire night. And still, no one is capable of leaving the salon. The door is wide open. No external obstacle that prevents the involuntary fellowship from leaving can be identified. Unwillingly, they all stay put and conventions, reason and morals threaten to erode…
