Charlie, a young American, arrives at Montmarie, Switzerland, to take over the girls' school he's inherited from his aunt. The school is being run by Lily, a dedicated, beautiful young instructor. The only catch is that Charlie's young sister and her girlfriends, all students, may be mixed up in something sinister. If Rudee, the handsome ski instructor, isn't quite what he seems, neither is Fritz, the bad tempered and menacing gardener. Mystery, comedy, and romance plus diverting humor all add up to a delightful evening of theatre.
