Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

In this comedy, a young couple is building an idyllic life together and think that they are well on the way to "happily every after," as their dream home has nearly been completed. That is, until the wife gets a notice that she is required to come into a health clinic to receive an antibiotic injection for a possible case of venereal disease. The only way this could have happened is if her husband has been fooling around. Grimly determined to find out exactly what has been going on, in her confrontative mood, she starts laying siege to his sensibilities by cutting up his clothes, and he returns the favor by cutting up her pantyhose. The conflict soon escalates, as he brings home a prostitute to nuzzle in front of her, and she takes to spending time quite openly with a policeman friend of hers. Meanwhile, the couple have a neighbor who wants to bring back the good old days of Stalinist rule and is training an underground army for that purpose. While the neighbor keeps a watchful eye on the goings-on next door, the mother of the aggrieved wife calmly waits for this drama to blow over. No matter what happens or why, she feels that it's all an old story.
