Twisted endings

What: A wealthy middle-aged man learns that his young wife, impatient for his money, has hired a contract killer. The rich man obligingly fixes drinks for his guest (the killer) and himself, then sits across from the killer. Puzzled by his action at first, the killer soon is at ease with the old man. Things take a turn when each of them reveals their own gameplan. Is it a bluff? Who is playing with whom? To know more, watch Shatterproof, a thriller play with a touch of black humour.
