Now in their forties Dorothy is happy with her domestic routine but her husband Frank is looking for a bit of spice in his life. Enter Helen, young and exciting she sends Frank's head in a spin.
Bill has a reputation as a ladies man but it is Betty that initiates the extra marital affair. Bill doesn't take much persuation. Things come to a head when both Frank and Bill start to get serious and the women have to take control of the situation.
