His wife, Marie, suddenly finds herself in the bitterly ironic position of a woman who has lost the husband she had been planning to leave for another man – she had just been waiting for the right time to tell him. A day later, however, she is summoned to the hospital to be told hat his body has disappeared from the morgue. Returning in confusion to the hotel, she then discovers that his clothes, passport and plane ticket have also gone …
