Felix and Oscar are recently divorced and decide to move in together even though their personalities are extremely different.

When Oscar's card playing buddies come over for their weekly game, the comedy begins. Felix is extremely upset about his divorce and locks himself in the bathroom during the card game. The guys try everything to help Felix out of his depression over his divorce, but he just wants to wallow in his misery.
