In a small English town the body of a middle aged man is found in the woods and three different people think they may be responsible for his death. Free-thinking artist Sam Marlowe becomes a good-natured sleuth, helping the townspeople to bury, dig up, and rebury the corpse in an effort to evade the authorities and discover the truth about Harry.
