George Smith, an architect in San Francisco, is feeling "a bit flat" after completing his latest, less-than-fulfilling project: designing a warehouse for a commercial complex. George's wife, Alice, tries to cheer him up by taking him to a party of artists, but it turns out to be a gaudy, pretentious affair that leaves both of them dispirited. After a restless night, George wakes up to find himself gazing with newfound fascination at the Picasso reproductions that adorn the walls of their apartment. Overcome with admiration for a truly brilliant artist, George impulsively proposes that he and Alice fly off to the south of France to track down Picasso and thank him in person. Alice agrees, thinking the trip will prove a delightful lark. But George's desire to find Picasso turns into an obsession that starts to take a toll on their seemingly ideal marriage. Written by

Darling, what's wrong?
Oh, nothing, I was just thinking about that building I designed. A warehouse - a stupid warehouse.
Come on, it'll be the best warehouse in San Francisco.
Three months of our lives just so people will have a place to put everything they don't want... 200 people designed that project, 2,000 people built it, and by the time they get it up, it'll be obsolete... You know something? Your husband designed a big empty box. They wouldn't even let me put a toilet in it.
