SynopsisRita has had a somewhat chequered life when it comes to men. Four husbands with a few boyfriends thrown in along the way has given her a somewhat caustic view of weddings.

As the tussle for superiority progresses the roles become reversed ending in a newly subservient Boy being dominated by the young woman who, as a result of Boy's behaviour, has found a new self-assurance.
