Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur are out-of-work musicians who room together in the city. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as married. The day of reckoning arrives when the Internal Revenue Service informs the “couple” it’s coming to investigate. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon’s fiancée, Kate. Complicating matters further, Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon’s back, Jon’s mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son’s fiancée, and Leslie’s ex-girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won’t see her anymore.
