1946 - a large country town - the dedication of the Town Square to a dead hero, Harold, is followed by an evening supper and the gathering of survivors of the war. Coral's home, where the gathering is held, becomes a place of turmoil: her friends, alive and ghostly, appear to cause retribution for the mysterious death of Maidey's twin sister, Elaine. The arrival of Elaine's daughter with her American fiancee and the revelations of her mother (a ghost) turn things upside down. As if that wasn't enough, guess who turns up alive and well - Harold, no.1 murder suspect.
