Husband and wife Edward and Helen have invested in a quaint country manor house that they operate as a silent, spiritual retreat. But after months of poor performance and scathing online reviews, the bank is threatening to foreclose on the property.

Unbeknownst to Helen, these threats have culminated in a public auction of the house which could ruin the fortieth wedding anniversary of her parents, Margaret and Walter. Meanwhile, Albert, Edward's father, supposedly mourning the recent loss of his wife, arrives at the celebrations with a much younger date, who takes an instant fancy to Walter, mistakenly believing him to be old-moneyed.

Edward suspects some of the guests may actually be buyers and has to stave off the threat of losing the house while trying to placate his difficult mother-in-law, who never seems to have liked him. Fortunately, Rhys, the retreat's resident spiritual guru, brings some calm to the situation in the form of a really strong "organic" sedative.
