"[G]rimly fun mayhem ensues, and nature, whether it's human or earthly, overrides any progressive intention."
After two gangsters are wounded, they take refuge on a couple's private island. As the men's behavior gets more menacing while they wait to be rescued, the young and beautiful wife urges her fainthearted older husband to take some kind of action.
