Lorna Blake, a woman with a heart problem, is certain that she is going to die. Nevetheless, she takes her prescription to the drug store to be filled. While Lorna waits, she records a message for her husband, Warren, using the drug store's record-making machine. On it, Lorna tells Warren that she knows he has been cheating on her and that she has poisoned his food.
When Lorna picks up her prescription, she notices that she has been given enough medication for a year. When she calls her doctor, she discovers that she isn't on death's door and could live to an old age.
Realizing that recording a confession was a mistake, Lorna now has to find a way to get it back.
