Antonia is the pampered wife of an upper class wine merchant, Martin Lynch-Gibbon. She tells her husband that she is in love with their best friend, psychiatrist Palmer Anderson. Palmer and Antonia wish to deal with the situation in a civilized manner by remaining friends with Martin.

Meanwhile, Martin tries to keep his mistress, Georgie Hands, a secret.
