Joan Fisk, daughter of the American ambassador to France, is bored with entertaining the wives of visiting V.I.P.s and decides to conduct an experiment.

At the end of the 1940s, de Havilland had become one of filmdom's most respected, awarded and admired dramatic actresses - here, she seems to be going backwards.
