Michael is a television writer, who writes commercials, lives in a studio, which is really a special apartment for TV commercials, and shares it with a computer named Arthur. Arthur can sing, do strange things with back projections so that Michael can command his environment, from day to night, from country scene to moonlit stratosphere, and does party tricks. Michael has a wife and seven children. He tries to keep Maud, a distressed actress who has just lost her husband, from growing more distressed. She stays the night, but when morning comes, so does the beautiful cleaning girl who is madly in love with Michael, and then, too, his wife shows up.
