Former performance athlete Barbara is a highly respected member of her factory, where she is known for the high standards she sets for herself and her colleagues. However, these same high standards lead to trouble at home when her husband is afraid to tell her he has lost his job as a mathematician. Barbara’s marriage finally ends when her husband's secretary becomes pregnant with his child and she is left to make a new start alone.
