The Story

Is it possible to commit the perfect crime? The beautiful and seductive Phyllis Nirlinger is willing to try. Aided by smitten insurance agent Walter Huff, Phyllis sets out to murder her husband and collect on a giant insurance claim. Caught in the femme fatale’s sinister web of guilt and betrayal, Huff finds himself on a deadly journey that may be more than he bargained for. Based on James M. Cain’s 1930s noir thriller, Double Indemnity is a dark and treacherous view of the power of greed and desire.
