Since concert pianist Duncan Latimer and wife, Ellen, famous soap opera star, lead impeccable lives their P.R. lady has no qualms over having a reporter from a scandal magazine interview them. But just before he arrives, so does Duncan's old Navy buddy and Ellen's former lover from her literally messy past and so does an extra wife Duncan forgot to tell anyone about. It's crazy and comical confusion all the way.
