Synopsis

In a bedroom, perched on the edge of an unmade bed, a man looks out a window at the falling snow. A blackbird settles on the windowsill and strikes up a melody. The man begins to sing the murders of his wife and two little children, as well as his own suicide. One by one, his son and daughter appear, and his wife turns, each singing a verse of their own.
