Plot: Inspired by England's Profumo scandal in which a member of Parliament was revealed to be deeply involved with a prostitute.

Social climber Stephen Ward takes alluring young women under his wing, and then introduces them to his influential circle of friends. But when one of these ladies has an affair with both Ivanov, a high-ranking Russian officer, and John Profumo, a British government official, the ensuing sex scandal causes an uproar. Soon, Profumo has been forced to resign, Ward has been arrested, and England's Conservative administration has fallen.
