Life in a soap opera meets life in a New York penthouse, resulting in a lampoon with wild madness. Crusty Horatio Tucker, sponsor of TV's most popular soap, receives a mysterious note saying the clue to his killer will be found in the next episode. He invites the cast to his place and forces them to act out the episode. Soon there's murder and chaos. A nasty network executive is dead and so is Dr. Rittenhouse. Then, Tucker is dispatched via chicken soup from the soap's saintly mother character. With characters slipping in and out of their roles and plastic surgeons, welfare cheaters, theatrical hams and assorted zanies running loose the action is alive with marvelous surprises, gags and delightful dialogue.
