He creates an imaginary prosecutor and he pits himself against this alter ego in a series of witty, sometimes hostile exchanges. Again and again he is frustrated, unable to formulate the ultimate alibi. He is shocked when he learns that his wife and someone else are simultaneously planning to kill him.
