The story of Jarlath Breen, an ex-Olympic swimmer, who spends his days in a bathtub and his nights on a water bed, and Carita, his wife, who sells herself as real estate, who decided to end their lives. Their attempt at suicide is interrupted by Clement Rose, an anthropologist, and his wife, Misty, a social worker. Misty attempts to save Jarlath from suicide through baptism and sex, but ends by drowning him in the bathtub before eventually marrying him in the coffin. The funeral guest arrives and reveals that he has had an affair with both Carita and Jarlath. Everyone ends up in the bathtub in this happy commingling of the festive and macabre.
