In this drama, a blue collar steelworker marries a wealthy socialite. It all begins after he saves two workers during a factory accident. To thank him, the boss invites him to dinner where he meets the boss's lovely daughter. She is so impressed by him that she vows that he will be hers in one month. She is correct and they marry. Unfortunately, he finds that her appetite for extravagances is insatiable. This begins to wear him down, financially and emotionally until he becomes a 'kept husband.' Eventually he convinces her to settle down, respect him, and live on his humble salary with no help from her wealthy papa.
