This romantic drama, co-written and directed by former Gainsborough Pictures kingpin Leslie Arliss, stars Edward Underdown as a man under uncomfortable scrutiny from the three women who know him best; the film also features a brief early appearance by Joan Collins, and a nightclub number from singer Teddy Johnson.

Mansell and van Rhyne. As she listens, Enid Mansell lets her thoughts roam back to the time when she first met her husband, and to the events which led to the break-up of their marriage...
