Summary In a seemingly amicable agreement, a frustrated wife hops a train to Palm Beach where divorces come easy. Desperate to escape a group of obnoxious millionaires on the train to Florida, she hides out in a sleeping car where she meets, unbeknownst to her, one of the world's richest men who is relentless in his attempt to romance her. Upon their arrival in Palm Beach, the wife is met by her husband who has come to claim her back only to find that the rich man's man-crazy sister is after him. The foursome's story unfolds through intensely humorous dialogue, flirtatious situations and a splendid soundtrack.
