There was nothing actors Lila Lee and James Kirkwood or writer C. Gardner Sullivan could do to bring new life to the tired old triangle theme of this comedy-drama. Lee plays Diana Moreland, whose husband, George (Kirkwood), has acquired a wandering eye. He is in the middle of an affair with Marilyn Foster (Margaret Livingston), and when Diana discovers it, she wants to divorce him. But for the sake of their child they decide to stay together and George promises to break things off with Marilyn. Marilyn, however, isn't having any and she soon has him back. Diana traces the two of them to a road house and joins their dinner accompanied by another man. She cheerfully invites Marilyn to come over for the weekend. When Marilyn arrives, Diana takes her and George out on a motor boat which she knows is unsafe. When the boat starts to sink, she calmly turns to her husband and tells him to choose which woman he will save. George chooses his wife, and another boat eventually comes and picks up the panicked Marilyn.
