A family get-together like no other. Henry's mother, brother and sister-in-law turn up to celebrate a birthday. But Henry's missed his brother's crucial television appearance, his mother's bought the most inappropriate present and his younger sister is in trouble with her boss and secret boyfriend. Poor Henry's at the end of his tether. Only to discover his wife has disappeared and his favourite dog seems about to breathe its last.
