Bernard (Steve Schreur) has made plans for a weekend of extra-marital affairs at the quaint getaway farmhouse he owns with his wife, Jacqueline (Jenn Stubbs), while she is out of town. He has invited his mistress Suzanne (Alden Price) for a few days of fooling around, kicking off with a romantic dinner prepared by the hired caterer, Suzette (Maxine Frauenheim). He's also invited his best friend Robert (Dale G. Gutt) to come and stay for the weekend. Unbeknownst to Bernard, Jacqueline is equally bad with monogamy and has her own 'man on the side'. That man happens to be Robert. When Jacqueline decides to remain at the country house rather than leaving town as Bernard expected, and the cook's husband George (Joe Barr) arrives without warning, it's a recipe of spouses, friends, lovers, and women called 'Suzy' that's custom-made to boil over with laughs.

Note: adult themes, may not be suitable for children.
