When hapless husband Greg (Michael Kitchen, Foyle's War
) throws a lavish 25th anniversary party for his wife, Linda (Phyllis Logan, Downton Abbey
), he ends up accidentally killing his business partner, who also happens to be Linda's lover. Marcey (Sophie Okonedo, Hotel Rwanda
), a government employee moonlighting as a waitress, discovers Greg with the corpse and helps him dispose of it. Made for British television, this offbeat tale is "equal parts black comedy, thriller, and farce"—Guardian
(UK). 1 DVD, SDH.
Greg Brentwood throws an extravagant anniversary party for his wife, Linda, at their house. Later that night, Marcey, one of the caterers, returns to the house to retrieve her handbag and walks in on a frightening scene: Greg moving the dead body of his business partner, Martin.
As Greg becomes more and more neurotic, Marcey gives him valium to calm his nerves. Linda hires Marcey as a temp worker at Greg's business, where Marcey uncovers some startling information in his books.
Linda grows suspicious when she learns that Marcey was in the taxi that found Martin. Marcey abruptly quits her job and tries to warn Greg, but a confrontation between Greg and Linda now seems inevitable.
