Lesbia is determined to live without a man, but wants to have a child. Hotchkiss has broken up a marriage, but is it the husband or wife he's interested in? All converge to forge a partnership agreement between consenting adults to try and circumvent the traditional marriage contract. And then the mysterious Mrs. George arrives to throw everyone off balance."
