This is not a murder mystery.


Following his wife's recent death, Gerald hope to spend the rest of his days alone with his memories.  But he reckons without his late wife's 'forward planning' which results in a series of unexpected events involving his daughter and son-in-law, his sister-in-law from hell, an
old flame and a glamorous cleaning lady.
