Triptych is a mystery-drama about love and revenge.

Mandy, the dizzy young wife of attractive writer and inveterate drinker, Daniel, arrives at their bush retreat with the intellectual, sophisticated Nina, who wants to buy their collection of first editions. Mandy seems unaware that Nina is Daniel's former lover. Daniel is angry, assuming that Nina has manufactured the meeting to destroy his new life.

The three are incarcerated in the house together overnight. The submerged antagonisms bring about conflict, re-surfacing love, absurd situations and revelation of obsessions - and a death.
