An elderly lady is found dead in her son's home, where she lived with her husband. The police investigation rapidly unearths a snake-pit of family and domestic guilt. Everyone, the son, the daughter-in-law and the husband could have had a personal reason to get rid of the senile and burdensome woman. Unless she herself  had chosen suicide. Is euthanasia a crime or is it just a choice of man destined to die?
