In a bedroom, perched on the edge of an unmade double bed, a man looks out of a window at the falling snow. Next to him lies a woman. A blackbird settles on the windowsill and strikes up a song which comes to form a melody over which the man starts to sing. He tells of the murders he has just carried out: those of his son, his daughter, and his wife in their sleep, before describing his own suicide. Once the story is over, the blackbird flies away and the man goes back to looking out of the window.
