Disappointed by her husband's feeble reaction to the attacker, their relationship further deteriorates. The bespectacled Francis, his long dormant masculinity now ignited, seeks and finally confronts the man, an encounter which ends in the accidental death of the thief.  The violent outcome seems to bring the two together and the wife soon becomes pregnant.
