The action takes place in the New York Jewish community in the 1940s-1950s. Herman Broder, the main character, in a twisted turn of events, finds himself being a husband of three different women at the same time.
One of them - Yadwiga - is his former Polish peasant servant. The second one is his beloved mistress Masha. The third one is Tamara - his lawful wife, who he thought had been long dead.
Out of the blue, Tamara shows up in New York and finds Herman.
Each one of these women lays her claim on Herman, and each one is dear to him in her own way...
