Paris, 1962. Bernard, a successful architect, has a very complicated love life.
His three fiancées, Gloria, Gabriella and Gretchen, work for different airlines with different timetables.
With the help of his maid, long-suffering Bertha, Bernard has somehow managed to keep all three women blissfully unaware of the others’ existence.
However, the arrival of an old friend from the provinces and the launch of a new super-fast jet propel Bernard’s carefully constructed plans into comic chaos.
