Felix Humble is an emotionally immature Oxford astrophysisist who makes a brief return to his home in the countryside for his father's funeral. His overbearing mother Flora seem's little moved by his father's death and Felix takes it badly when he finds she is already planning to re-marry. Especially when the groom-to-be is George Pye, with whom she has been having an affair, and who happens to be the father of Felix's former girlfriend Rosie (whom he abandoned to take up his Oxford studies).
When a garden party is arranged to bring them all together, with the decedent's ashes in a small pot on the table, mean-spirited sniping all-round soon becomes the order of the day.
