Esther (Phyllis Calvert) and her sister Jennifer (Gillian Owen) are spinsters on holiday in a remote country cottage. Things take a dramatic turn when a policeman (Alan White) calls, searching for the body of the former tenant's wife. When a human skeleton is unearthed in a chicken coup, the finger of suspicion points firmly at the previous occupant, Mr. Smith (Thorley Walters).
The Radio Times gave the film two out of five stars, and wrote, "A quaint idea and a decent cast make perfectly respectable entertainment out of an hour-long British programmer, but there's not much more to be said for it."
