Adrienne Corri and Thorley Walters star in this domestic drama directed by Maurice Elvey. When hugely successful TV advertising executive Deborah (Corri) marries Charles (Walters), a man with a less promising future, it comes as a shock when she is asked by the board of directors to leave her post at the agency. With her career in jeopardy, can she rewrite the rules of the workplace in time to save her job?
