Gerald, an archaeological lecturer, rents a remote country cottage for the week-end, ostensibly to work on a local site, in reality hoping for a little middle-aged philandering with his attractive college librarian, Ruth. Gerald introduces her to the landlord of the cottage, Bill Flack, as his secretary.

After increasingly hilarious complications, Ruth and Alison ally themselves against Gerald, but Hamish the bull has the last word.
