Gilbert Bodley, the boss of an exclusive West End furriers, has an insatiable appetite for beautiful women. In order to give his latest prospective mistress Janie a gift of an expensive mink without upsetting her husband, Gilbert plots to sell it to him at a massive discount and pay the rest of the £5,000 price tag himself.

However, plans never run as simply as they are supposed to and what appears at first to be a relatively simple transaction quickly turns into a choatic sequence of events, mixing girlfriends, mistresses, husbands, wives, secretaries and the sex life of a rather aged customer!
