[ Story ]

One night, three wives, Matsuyo, Keiko and Mari, receive a mysterious telephone call. The voice tells them that she has their husbands with her and invites them to " P " Hotel to see for themselves.
They have been married for many years and are bored with their husbands, and are about to secretly carry on affairs with the other's mates.
The three women meet together in the hotel room. They hear a knock and stare at the door. The owner of the mysterious voice enters. She claims to be their conscience and tells them that though other fields may seem greener and other husbands seem better, all men are more or less the same. She advises them to return to their husbands before she really steals them with her siren's song.
