A Cavalier for Milady is a psychological and sexual fantasy in which two late-middle-aged women go off for an evening in New York City with male escorts from agencies such as "Companions for Madam" and "Cavaliers for Milady." The women leave behind an adult daughter, Nance, in the care of a hostile "babysitter." Nance, however, dressed in the clothes of a Victorian child, quickly drives off the unhappy babysitter and spends the evening with a Greek statue "come to life" as an apparition of the great Russian dancer Vaslav Nijinsky.
