David Scott-Fowler, a successful writer, and his wife Joan, were bright young things of the hedonistic twenties, fashionable, glamorous and attractive. By the end of the 1930s, the social mood changing with the approach of war, their frivolity is wearing thin, and the endless round of drinking and parties has become a thin veneer concealing a darker reality. Central to their troubles is a refusal to take their marriage seriously or to acknowledge their responsibilities to one another. As the flimsy structure of their lives starts to collapse, they are awakened – too late – to the realities of their lives.
