Life for newly-married assistant bank manager David Hunter is pretty easy - until a series of peculiar parcels begin arriving at his flat above the Windsor bank, and getting chief clerk Brian Runnicles into an awful fluster!

Brian and wife Penny are at a loss as to understand why they are in receipt of stacks of books entitled 1001 Perversions, dozens of reels of blue movies and hundreds more saucy postcards. She ordered some Swedish-made glassware, but the parcels arriving at the flat are Swedish produce of an entirely different nature!

Whilst David struggles to keep the matter from his anti-pornography campaigner boss Mr. Bowler, and Penny finds herself constantly frustrated by David's domineering and demanding vegetarian mother Bertha who has imposed herself upon the couple for the week, Brian runs around the town attempting to dispose of the goods.

And when two barely-clothed young women turn up one evening, Brian's convinced he's finally snapped!

Will the trio ever manage to get rid of the dirty material? Can they avoid the police discovering the parcels and accusing them of distribution? And just who is sending such filthy items - and why?!
