Neil Mather’s life is unravelling: a failing business, a sexual indiscretion, a threatened marriage. The banks refuse to bail his business out.
He could ask his elderly father, Raymond, a man of means, to help him. But Raymond never shows any interest in Neil, only in his vicar, Judy, a relationship of which Neil is deeply suspicious. Afraid to voice his concerns to Raymond, a strong-willed and autocratic individual, Neil says nothing. As a last resort to save his business and normalise his marriage, he turns to a pair of loan sharks.
Raymond dies suddenly, leaving his entire estate to his son: a timely slice of luck.
Then Neil makes a shocking discovery.
