The dilettantes who frequent Lady Tantamount's society parties are determined to push forward the moral frontiers of the age.
Marjorie has left her family to live with Walter; Walter is in love with the luscious but cold-hearted Lucy who devours every man in sight; the repulsive Spandrell deflowers young girls for the sake of entertainment and all the while everyone is engaged in dazzling and witty conversation.
