The marital difficulties of four very different couples living in a newly built, post WW II southern California housing development become intertwined. Among the unhappy couples are alcoholic Jerry and his long-suffering wife Isabelle; overly friendly, lonely Leola and her sanctimonious husband Troy; stable Herman and his wise wife Betty; and the new arrivals, Jean and David Martin. Alcohol fuels the parties, misunderstandings, and depth of unhappiness that hangs over the sunny California development like a dark cloud.
