Mae is a sweet-natured woman with just a little baggage-a $600 million inheritance. When her womanizing boyfriend Henry seduces her aunt, both women become the object of scandal. But Henry has a plan to win the heiress back. In the lush and opulent land of the Hamptons, where money and status determine everything, can love conquer all? This comedy of manners-with no manners at all-is a sparklingly witty physical comedy illuminating the foibles of the upper class.
