In this bedroom farce, a writer rails against marriage and touts the benefits of staying single. He then convinces his friend that only relationships based on struggle and strife are worth having. His friend is married so the writer suggests he start trouble by trying to make her jealous. The naive fellow does so by sleeping with a faded French actress. This is the woman the writer wanted. The philanderer then returns home fully expecting his beloved wife to forgive him with open arms. Things don't turn out that way at all. To make it worse, the writer is also very angry at him.
