Francine Faraday dies and leaves her entire estate to her longtime companion, H.P. Manly. While the loyal members of Francine’s staff are delighted, her money-hungry relatives are furious. Though the will is ironclad, the relatives find that they can inherit Francine’s fortune if H.P. dies of “natural” causes.

As the family plots H.P.’s demise, the staff schemes to save him, resulting in counter-plots and mixed-up romances aplenty.

It’s just your average family drama following an heiress’ demise. (Not!) Follow the schemers and counter-schemers, if you can!
