When Sylvia returns only twenty-four hours after walking out, her husband Max isn't exactly overjoyed. Nor is three times divorced Harry who has set the wheels in motion to recapture the romantic successes of their youthful days of bachelorhood and it's too late to stop the young ladies arriving! Sylvia watches with much amusement as her hapless husband tries, and fails, to appreciate the delights of freedom and finally decides that the bonds of matrimony are preferable.
