Valerie Garner has been working for the last six months as the new account manager at an advertising agency. Her boss, creative director Dan Lambert, says his wife, Margaret, wants her to come to dinner to meet the talented young woman who has made quite a splash at the agency. But once Valerie arrives at the Lambert home, all is not as it seems. We soon realize Valerie is actually Dan's mistress, and the last place in the world she wants to be is in the home and presence of her lover's wife. On top of that, Margaret is saying things that may (or may not) mean she knows what's going on. So why has she invited Valerie there? Does she want to meet her rival face to face? Or does she have a more calculated plan to save her marriage?
