Sinossi

Esasperata dai tradimenti del marito, Doris Attinger, comprata una pistola, segue lo stesso fino a casa dell'amante, per poi sparargli. Solo l'inesperienza con le armi impedisce alla donna di uccidere il fedifrago che se la cava con delle ferite. In tribunale il caso è affidato al viceprocuratore distrettuale Adamo Bonner. Sua moglie, l'avvocato Amanda Bonner, paladina dei diritti delle donne, assume la difficile difesa apparentemente disperata, della signora Attinger. Adamo è molto contrariato dal dover fronteggiare sua moglie che, sapendo molto determinata, gli sarà sicuramente ostile in aula con conseguenze che immagina turberanno la loro felice unione. Amanda sembra invece divertirsi nello stuzzicare il marito che, come la maggior parte degli uomini dell'epoca, non riconosce, di fatto, alle donne quella parità di diritti che le stesse hanno conquistato.
