After the honeymoon ends, newlyweds George and Cathy find that the spark is gone from their marriage. Not wanting to face the shame of divorce, Cathy decides having a child is the solution to their troubles. The prospect of a baby excites George, but try as they might, conception eludes the couple.
Dr. Wright determines that George's sperm is inadequate for impregnation. George withdraws from his wife and mysteriously disappears for a long period of time. Confused, frightened, and unable to turn to her mate, Cathy throws liquor-soaked parties and flirts wildly with anyone who might be a perspective father for the child she desperately desires.
Upon his return, the doctor assures George that his sterility in no way diminishes his credibility as lover. George and Cathy reunite as they consider artificial insemination and wrestle with the moral issues involved. After deliberation, Cathy agrees to be artificially inseminated. Dr. Wright comforts them in their decision and advises discretion to conceal George's secret.
