Jean and Bill are a married couple trying to scrape a living. Out of the blue they receive a telegram informing them Bill’s long-lost uncle has died and left them his business—a cinema in the town of Sloughborough. Unfortunately they can’t sell it for the fortune they hoped as they discover it is falling down and almost worthless.
