Synopsis

A comedic twist on the murder mystery genre! Six guests have been invited to a soiree at the isolated country estate of the elderly Lady Somerset. When one of the guests is murdered before revealing a dark secret, Lady Somerset refuses to let her party be interrupted - even by the police! When the murderer strikes again, however, the remaining guests must work together to revenge themselves on someone who controls their lives - and deaths.
