After years in a boring marriage and an equally tedious office job, Henry Fairlane is invited to a "special" party by one of his colleagues. He neglects to tell his wife what kind of party it is and is refused admittance when he loses her at Belsize Park Tube station. The night turns out to be even more frustration for Henry, but not for his wife!
