Theo fears that Louise’s wardrobe malfunction at the royal parade may have ruined their public image, but the prospective tenants who shortly come calling find the lingerie mishap more titillating than repellent. A nosy neighbor encourages Louise to take advantage of the situation and have an affair, but her tenant-suitors keep getting distracted. What’s a model housewife to do?
