Two unmarried sisters have rented an isolated country house in search of peace and quiet to aid the younger sister’s recovery from a recent nervous breakdown. They have hardly arrived before the police come and start digging in the garden for the dismembered body of the wife of the previous tenant who has mysteriously disappeared. Their peace is shattered, the quiet country atmosphere they longed for becomes chaotic and when the husband of the supposed victim turns up in the shape of a very meek and timid little man, the twists and complications which follow lead to hilarious surprises for everyone.
