A mild-mannered insurance clerk at a big corporation realizes that the only way to a promotion is to loan out his apartment for his superiors to carry on their extramarital affairs. Once he's rewarded for his services, he moves up the ladder and pursues his love interest - the elevator operator girl. Only problem is - she's the mistress of the CEO.
