Bernard invites his mistress Brigit to his home to celebrate her birthday; to hide his relationship with her from his wife Jacqueline, he also invites his friend Robert. Bernard plans to tell Jacqueline that Brigit is Robert's mistress. Unfortunately, Robert is having an affair with Jacqueline! When the new maid, also named Brigit, arrives ahead of time, frantic complications—in which identities, plots, counter-plots, and bedrooms are exchanged with ever increasing confusion—transpire until an unexpected ending makes everyone happy, including the "temporary" Brigit who has acquired a mink coat and a wad of cash.
