Chemist John Burge has become disenchanted with his wife Mary, who has gained a great deal of weight because she is a compulsive eater. He has taken a lover named Frances, and things are coming to a head: she has demanded that he leave his wife for her. Since Frances is also friends with Mary, she finds out that Mary would not simply allow John to divorce her; she'd soak him for every dollar the court would give her. Burge has a doctor on a string: Doctor Applegate is addicted to painkillers the chemist provides. Perhaps the doctor can help her - or perhaps he can help Burge, should Burge elect to solve his problems another way...
