Peter, a mathematician who embodies niceness itself, is in financial trouble because of his brother's bankruptcy. His neighbour Margaret decides to seek help from his friends who spend much of their time boasting about their wealth. But while his friends happily take advantage of Peter's good nature in their own hour of need, how willing will they be to help him in his?
A revealing clash between materialism and ideals.
