When failed inventor James Jones (Paul Freeman) dies in a laboratory accident, his estranged children return to the family estate to settle his affairs.

This is a story about a weird house and the weird family, two parents, two boys and two girls, who grew up there. It's a large, beautiful, but run down country house with acres of land. Their dead dad - James Jones, was an inventor who made something that made him a lot of money, so he bought a big house and had a big family. Unfortunately, although he invented many more things, nothing ever made any money after the first big payoff. His inventions became more and more weird and imaginative, but he just couldn't get it right. The family come together for the bereavement and this is where the intriguing plot happens. Great film
