It's tough fighting a divorce but when your wife decides to show your children your sponge bag in order to promote you as being one of the three most evil men - along with Nero and Attila the Hun - then you are in trouble. Roger Flower, an impoverished composer, is one such man and his acrimonious divorce from his well-heeled wife, Emma, is doing him no favours. He has, however, found some consolation in the arms of Rose who finds an adulterous relationship a major turn on. In order to maintain their healthy sex-life she marries an all-in wrestler called Stanley on the morning of his divorce!
