A young married couple have inherited an old manor home and turned it into a guest house. Five guests arrive in a
snowstorm. Shortly thereafter a policeman arrives to make sure they are all safe from a murderer, as there was a
notebook found at the scene of the crime with the address of the guest house in it. Will anyone die? Will the policeman
solve the crime? Is anyone who they say they are? Time will tell.
