In this satirical comedy, Fred Amidon is a Fifth Avenue bank teller waiting for his divorce to be finalized to end his marriage to Rachel. He and fellow employee Pamela plan to marry once the ink dries on the decree. A Central Park picnic with Pamela finds Fred suffering a bee string on his chin, which he covers with a bandage. Fred then goes on a three-week vacation, and during that time he grows a beard because the bee sting makes it difficult to shave. He returns to work, and when he refuses to shave, he is branded a rebel and a symbolic hero in the worker struggle against management.
