Ben and Susan are a happily married young Jewish couple, whose main cause of dissent is Ben's interfering mother Sadie. They have invited Susan's younger sister Katie to dinner; however, Sadie invites herself along too, as well as a string of possible suitors for Katie, not realising that Katie's lover, Chris, has arrived unexpectedly. Susan realises that the time has come to face the issue of Sadie's interference. A fast moving comedy.
