Unfortunately for star Eileen Percy, the only intriguing thing about this fluffy farce is its title. Percy plays Eunice Day, whose husband, Elmer (Harry Myers), is called away on business on their anniversary. Eunice's sister Maud (Jane Miller) is also having trouble with her husband, Gilbert (Hayward Mack). But then both girls discover that their supposedly hard-working spouses are attending a masquerade ball. In an attempt to catch them, Eunice and Maud get the building's telephone girl, Marie (Bess True), to make a date with one of the husbands -- then all three girls show up at the party disguised in the same costume. After the usual farcical confusion where everyone winds up with the wrong partner, the place is raided. The husbands escape, but the wives are arrested, and they have a lot of explaining to do at the police station.
