New Year’s morning 1938. Vera and her husband Joe, an influential theatre producer, return from a party, at which a young playwright, Dennis, has paid to court Vera. Rather than compromise his art, Dennis has decided to quit New York for Acapulco and wants Vera to accompany him. But Vera sends him away; she is, after all, the fat man’s wife.
