We visit the home of eccentric couple Yvonne and Herbert Michaeljohn. Things get complicated when Jacqueline, their daughter, invites her boyfriend Edgar for the weekend. Amanda, their other daughter, picks him up from the station on her motorbike. Adding to the confusion are Fabio, an Italian interior designer, Linda, Hubert's co-researcher and Brinsworth, the gardener. Misunderstandings provide the scope for an evening of laughter.
As a clergy wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour. After the death of her husband Bardolph, she takes her grief out on the new - female - vicar, Sarah. The return of Grace's eccentric missionary sister Ruth prompts some disturbing revelations. At the same time Sarah reveals some un-clergy-like thoughts to Grace's therapist daughter Jo.
