A wave of rich, fashionable London breaks
over the quiet West Country private hotel run by Mrs. Daly and her
daughter Evelyn, when Mrs Lancaster and her husband and daughter are
marooned in heavy snow and forced to take shelter with the Daly's.
The visitation creates emotional havoc with all in residence, until
at last the thaw comes and the Lancasters go their way, leaving the
residents to curl once again into their protective cocoons.
The action takes place in the lounge
and garden of a West Country Hotel on the edge of Dartmoor.
