Molly Lane has just died, and her former lovers, Clive Linley and Vernon Halliday, join Molly's husband George and others mourners to pay their last respects. Clive is Britain's most successful modern composer; Vernon is an idealistic newspaper editor; and Julian Garmony is Britain's Foreign Secretary…and another of Molly's former lovers. When George finds incriminating photos of Molly and Julian, he tries to enlist Clive and Vernon in a plan to bring down Julian Garmony.
