Plot – Spoilers:
Jack’s an engineer but fancies himself as an architect and above all, an artist. He’s inherited a good deal of money and so has devoted his time to building the ideal house. But the passion that really envelops Jack is killing. He’s bought a freezer and built up quite the collection of bodies that he uses to entertain himself in myriad ways.
Though Jack’s exploits run over 12 years, we follow five specific incidents as narrated by him to a strange man called Verge. Jack’s philosophy on getting away with his often brazen behaviour is simple – don’t bother hiding, because no really cares anyway.
