A sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing to pull off the heist of their lives. Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his criminal gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of the sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus' brilliantly conceived heist job but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, Mrs Wilberforce is trapped alone with five desperate men. Who will be forced to face the music?
Only one way to find out....
