David Masterman is an artist and a teacher who has the pleasure of teaching an art class to a group of lovely young women. Three in particular are of interest to him. First are Ianthe and Katherine Forrest, who have little artistic talent but are both quite attractive. The third is Julia Tern whose artistic talents in some areas match his own. There are few young men around - it's the years just after World War I - and mores are changing. Masterman doesn't see himself as having the temperament to settle down with just one woman, but when one of them leaves for several months, he wonders if he has fallen in love.
