Between world wars, the Whittakers estate is sinking; only the iron will of Mrs. Whittaker staves off bankruptcy while she awaits her son Johns return from the continent. To her dismay, he brings a bride: an American widow who races cars. The bride, Larita, thinks she and John will visit and then go to London, where hell work and shell race. But John is to the manor born, and mother is nothing if not a master at plans and manipulation. Soon its all-out war between mother and bride, with Johns father, a burnt out veteran of the Great War, in the brides corner ineffectually. Mother has a plan to join with the neighboring estate; only Larita is in her way. Cant we all get along?
