The movie revolves around the lives of a young couple, Dr Bill and Alice Harford.

At the party, two girls also approach Bill and attempt to seduce him whilst Alice is approached by Sandor Szavost. However, he catches Victor having sex with Mandy, who overdoses and Bill manages to save her.

Later that evening, Alice questions whether Bill wanted to engage in sexual activities with the two girls who hit on him. He states that he did not want to and when she asks if he would be jealous if she engaged in activities with other men, he tells her that he has faith that women are loyal to men.
