Jodie (Jane Horrocks) is a mere slip of a girl, stifled in her bookshop job and oppressed by her domineering mother (Brenda Fricker). She decides to murder Mum, and while pondering how to do it is visited by a host of ghosts of ghastly British murderers, including Dr Crippen, Kate Webster, Major Armstrong, George J. Smith and Jack the Ripper. Jodie manages to get her mother bundled up in a trunk with the help of her sister Beth (Imelda Staunton). However, when Beth's chap Benny starts eyeing up Jodie, Beth resorts to blackmail, threatening to to expose her sibling in order to win back her man.
