This heavily stylized production with lip-synched musical numbers follows Arthur Parker, a Depression-era sheet-music salesman with big dreams. When Arthur faces relationship problems with his wife, Joan, which are compounded by financial issues, he begins an affair with a withdrawn yet beautiful teacher, Eileen . Though Arthur and Eileen prove to be kindred spirits, fate may not have their happiness in store.
