Rob works at “Joe’s Cleanup,” which specializes in the disposal of corpses of all types. With his girlfriend Betty, he shares not only an apartment, but also a penchant for dead bodies. What an added bonus when Rob brings a corpse home with him, which is, indeed, murdered, but still rather complete. The sexual fulfillment as a threesome is fervid, but not long lasting. Rob is fired from his job, Betty leaves him, and on top of that, takes the dead lover with her.
