Mr. Donald Howard Becton III, the successful globe-trotting businessman and millionaire, is deader than a pair of socks. And he is presently on display for the world to see at the Olson-Hines Funeral Home. His wife, the educated and well-pedigreed Eileen, visits, and puts on a good show to get that nervous, rat terrier of a junior funeral hall director in training, Mr. Hines, to leave her alone with the corpse. Unfortunately, Eileen has a problem. No, not the pyromaniac daughter nor the bedwetting son; no, no one can find Becton's will, not even his golf-obsessed lawyer knows where it is. Perhaps clues to the dilemma can be found on the corpse? But, before a proper search can be made, Veronica shows up, a gaudily painted, silicone enhanced "lady" who also claims to be Becton's wife. Let's just say that that is not what Eileen expected. The two immediately despise each other and eventually go at it to hilarious means, leaving behind a very perplexed Mr. Hines (and one very battered corpse) at play's end.
