Synopsis:
Albert Rudley suspects that his wife Rita has been trying to murder him. Though he suffers from poor hearing, his hearing aid enables him to overhear his wife conspiring with their chauffeur Vincent. Albert learns that the recent string of "near accidents" that he has suffered were actually plots to end his life. Later, Rita asks her husband to go on a boating trip to Canada. Albert knows that she intends on capsizing the boat in the hopes that he will drown, so he takes measures to prevent this. He poisons her drink with a drug that will cause paralysis once she enters the water. He deliberately leaves behind his hearing aid, so that he will have an alibi as to why he could not hear her cries for help. Albert and Rita row out into the middle of a river and Rita decides to swimming. As predicted, the poison paralyzes her and she screams in terror. Albert smiles as his boat continues downstream. Unfortunately, without his hearing aid, he cannot hear the sound of rushing water. His boat goes off the edge of a water fall and Albert dies.
