The war is finally over. General Michail proposes to Grotilde—so she skips
ahead and plans the inevitable, but festive, divorce. Meanwhile, the weather is playing
tricks on people, as is The President, and Grotilde's son won't accept the
armistice. In this comedy of no manners, everyone is normible (both normal and
terrible all at once).
