Irene's elderly lover gets drunk and falls asleep on her birthday, so she goes to the bar in the hotel where she and Jean meet. After making her several impressive cocktails, they retire, tipsy, to the hotel's Imperial suite where they spend the night together. In the morning, Jean awakens to find Irene has gone.
