Maureen Clarke, a shy supermarket check-out girl, is surprised to be invited to the reading of Charles Gillespie’s will. She gets a hostile reception from the dead man’s sister, Maisie Macken and her son, Marty. However, the dead man’s nephew, Billy Redmond welcomes her and supports her. But has he an ulterior motive? As the unusual reading progresses, Maureen is reluctantly drawn into the family’s squabbles and learns that a financial bequest can bring its own problems.
