Bill Ferguson, an Edinburgh travel agent, has a quarrel with his fiancée, Stella, when she refuses to spend the night in his apartment. He leaves on a tour of Europe and has affairs with Lucille in Austria, with Ingrid in the Alps, and with a married Englishwoman in Italy. As mementos, he gives each of them a key to his Edinburgh apartment. After returning home, he makes up with Stella and finally lures her to his flat; but Lucille, Ingrid, the Englishwoman, and her teenaged daughter all arrive at the same time. Stella storms out, Ingrid leaves with her Italian lover Giulio, and Bill is left with the adoring teenager. Assisted by Maggie Shoemaker, an American vacationing in Scotland, Bill manages to get out of his predicament and win Stella's hand.
