Plot Summary
Summary Debbie, a suburban housewife whose husband Gerald insists on buying her a gun for protection, hates the very thought of a dangerous weapon around their home. But like the obedient wife she's always been, Debbie reluctantly accepts Skippy's gift. Before long, the firearm is stolen, and Debbie's life begins to perk up, thanks to the boy next door -- who happens to be a thief. By the time the gun is recovered, it's one gift Gerald may just regret giving.
