The film starts slowly: A woman is in the kitchen preparing food for the evening meal. Her husband enters; he has a brochure in his hands promoting a new house yet to be built.

He begins to tell her what a good deal he has got for them and how they will soon be able to move together to a new, much bigger place. Nervously she cautions him, reminding him that they are broke and that perhaps buying a new house at this time is not such a great idea.
