In Victor Lucas' comedy members and friends of the Budgett family gather at Creeching Cheyney to hear the terms of Uncle Desmond's will but all is not as it seems.

Who exactly is the "revolting" butler who greets everyone on their arrival and what are terms of the will? Who gets what and will they like it? Will the ghosts have a hand in it?
