A succession of guilty souls is viewed through a mysterious portal as they are dispatched to eternal damnation. The clips are taken from the closing moments of the popular 1960s television show Perry Mason, where the "true" murderer (never Mason's defendant/client) is unmasked and confesses in an emotional breakdown. The movements are arranged in a succession of cascading and overlapping images that suggest a commonality of distorted humanity.
