Pretextat Tach is a famous writer, a Nobel prize winner, but he is also a recluse. Now dying of cancer, he decides to grant an interview, the first time he has seen anyone at all in years. He will pass on his vision of the world, his testimony. He talks to Nina, a confident young journalist, who is horrified at his misogyny: he advocates murdering all women as soon as they begin to menstruate. The next day, Tach is found murdered and Nina becomes the chief suspect.
