Daphne and Rex live lives of well-to-do elegance while Rex's brother Stanley scrimps for tobacco and Camp coffee. Rex's daughter has also become a victim; her cruel husband has turned her into an eccentric skivvy. If life is a bowl of cherries, there are always those left with the bruised remnants.
