Anna is a journalist. She is involved with three men. Bernard represents old money. His family owns an established media empire. Ivan represents new money. He is a corporate raider. John represents no money. He is a composer, currently commissioned to write a Wedding March for socialites, Roger and Clara. Anna is currently living with John, but their life styles differs, and after meeting Ivan at a press conference she leaves John to live with Ivan. After a month she leaves Ivan because she finds him too controlling. She briefly returns to John. In describing her experiences she passes on confidential information about Ivan’s future financial plans. She also passes these on to several socialites including Bernard who has approached her privately. She accepts his offer of marriage. Ivan, furious that Anna is now with Bernard, sells assets to achieve liquidity to make a play for Bernard’s media empire, which has just gone public. A stock market crash puts Ivan in a position to pursue this takeover. Bernard agrees not to marry Anna, if Ivan will abandon his takeover. Anna is furious when she learns of their dealings, and accuses them both of treating her like an asset that can be bought or sold. She informs them that she will do her own marketing, She is joining an escort agency, Meanwhile Roger, now financially ruined, jumps off a tall building, There will be no wedding for Clara, and the wedding March will not now be needed. Nor will John be paid. A month later Anna sends out an SOS from a hospital where she is being treated for an overdose. Ivan, Bernard and John speed to her bedside. Ivan and Bernard offer to pay her medical bills, but tell her that she is no longer suitable as a wife. John has no such problem with her current profession, and assures her that “their” Wedding March will be played at “their” wedding. If she gets better.
