Norfolk seaside resort Thurnemouth is home to three retired couples, bossy Joyce and her easy-going husband Alan, ultra-conservative John and sensible Maureen and nervous Carol, who, with boring Trevor, is rebuilding the marriage after a separation. Only Alan is looking forward to seeing flash Mick, widower of Jean, whose funeral they are all attending, and who arrives from Spain with Lithuanian trophy wife Elena and tales of the wonderful life to be had by Brits seeking the sun. In fact it is all a lie as Elena tells Trevor, as Mick has lost their money and she is about to leave him. Everybody troops into the church for the funeral ceremony - which is interrupted by Joyce's phone as her son rings to say that she is a grandmother.
