This is the story of a thief who makes the wrong move when he decides to break into Max Pardy’s apartment, the star of a teleshopping TV show. The burglary goes wrong and Pardy is killed.
So begins a fierce revenge … orchestrated from a TV set. On screen, Pardy praises the virtues of an electrical muscle stimulator. He wraps the sensors around his torso and powers on the stimulator… The thief gets a nasty electric shock. Then, Pardy is about to use an electric can opener. The thief runs to turn off the TV but the opener sets off, hacking off the poor thief’s hand. The curse is escalating now as other electric devices come on. The thief, in a very bad state, eventually finds the circuit-breaker and switches it off. The TV sets go off.
The thief thinks he is safe now…
