Miriam Margolyes stars in a comedy thriller, in which five global movers and shakers descend upon a tranquil village to compete for a huge grant to further their research. On a vist to Culborn Church (a favourite hike of Wordsworth and Coleridge), one of the group dies in mysterious circumstances and a weekend dedicated to world affairs becomes a murder hunt.
