The Parrot

Listen in app
Desiree is married to a wealthy but violent captain of a fishing trawler. For ten years of marriage he terrorizes her, until one night his boat is wrecked at sea and he is never seen alive again.

Four years later, Desiree buys an ill-tempered and foul-mouthed parrot in an auction, and a new nightmare begins.
