Peter loves to watch his wife walk down the sidewalks of New York saying "How do you do?" and he loves the way she shines against the gray backdrop of the city. He hates to tell her that they can't afford movies every week and then watches anxiously as his friend Jake flirts with her. This tale, full of psychological intrigue, shows how an ordinary but clever man fights for his wife's respect.
