Melinda, Alice, and Liz are very good friends. Likewise, their husbands, too, are close and have known each other since childhood. Once a year, the men take off for Las Vegas for some guy-time and to reinforce their brotherhood. Their wives, even though somewhat reluctant, support this venture and do not want to interfere with their husbands' friendship or appear mistrusting. Everyone goes on "happy" and oblivious for years, until Liz discovers a large packet of condoms, lubricant jelly, and a pair of handcuffs in her husband's suitcase. The only undisputable recourse left is for the wives to catch their husbands' red-handed and in the act, leaving no room for denials. Is there a just retribution for a spouse who has cheated and lied multiple times, while appearing to be wonderful, loyal, and committed?
