 is happily married to  and they have no problems save one:  they can’t conceive a child. When he goes off on a business trip, he meets  (who also directed this independently produced film) and starts an affair with her. Not telling her he is already married to Fontaine, he marries Lupino and they have a child. Now the cad is going back and forth between wives until finally the game is up and he finds himself in court for committing bigamy. Though the story sounds lurid, it’s actually a well-acted character piece that requests sympathy for all involved and doesn’t sensationalize its subjects.
