When Sylvia Van Kipness decides to expose her love affair to her husband and her lover’s wife, the true meanings of fate, identity and marriage are called into question. A web of secrets unravels in this ridiculous-and potentially murderous-romantic comedy. Sylvia and her lover Beau, who also happens to be her brother in law, are spending their annual romantic rendezvous at Beau's family's cottage. Unbeknownst to Beau, Sylvia has already sent telegrams to their spouses alerting them of their on-going tryst and letting them know they intend to leave their spouses and be together. Beau's brother Clarke and Beau's wife Marjorie descend upon the cottage to confront the lovers as well as Beau's other lover Dierdre and her jealous ex-husband Richard.
