Margaret and Grace are preparing a little party for their long lost sister, Dorothy. They’ve dressed up, they have food she likes, and they’re even prepared to suffer the music of Dorothy’s favourite songstress, Vera Lynn. But there are a couple of flies in the ointment:
1. The sole person Dorothy needs to see, can’t come to the party,
And 2. Margaret and Grace are dead.
