Marian and Ido are married and have a 16-year-old daughter, Pinkie. Marian and Ido's marriage has become boring. Ido is a conservative and neat furniture manufacturer, but secretly starts a relationship with the beautiful Emma, his secretary. When Marian discovers this, she offers him a choice: stay with her or move on with Emma. Ido cannot make this choice, so Marian throws him out. Ido moves in with Ida, but continues to interfere intensively with Pinkie, who to his horror becomes friends with Wim, one of his Turkish workers..
