No one knows who he is as he only signs his "work" AK for artistic killer. Hot on his trail is a television reporter who lives with a pianist and a performance artist in a loft. Peter, the pianist, is practicing one day when he is mugged by two AK wannabes who place him alive in a giant frame. Later Peter finds himself framed for real when AK starts leaving clues that make it look like the piano player committed the crimes. Things get worse when the cops find an unconscious Peter beside the two corpses of his muggers. Suddenly Nellie, the TV reporter disappears. After that things begin happening very quickly until the killer meets final justice.
