Ann is angry at Donald for the article he just wrote about women's liberation from the perspective of a fictional, independent young woman. Her anger is because she knows that that girl is a thinly disguised Ann Marie. The article leads to a heated discussion about the battle between the sexes. Ann believes that men in general treat women as the lesser sex, while Donald believes that he treats women in a fair and dignified manner. As such, they rehash many incidents in their five year history. Ann convinces Donald to attend her women's liberation meeting that evening before he is to go to an NHL game without her. On the way to the meeting they get stuck in a hotel elevator with among others the elevator operator and a young newlywed couple. Will further reminiscing and their current situation answer the question of whose perspective is more accurate?
