The family of wealthy, elderly Henrietta Winslow gathers for an advance reading of her will. Believing Henrietta is near death, her nephew, Montague, has brought along realtor Gil Smith. Dismayed that the family anticipates her demise, Henrietta reads her will and stuns everyone by adding that no one can inherit until the estate guardian, Abigail, dies. When Henrietta is murdered, Abigail fears her own life is in danger.
