After 33 years of marriage, Beth has come to terms with the demise of her husband, Gordon. But, in the course of a horrendous family Christmas, she seems the only one who has. Her sister-in-law Connie uses his memory as an excuse to drown in boozy self-pity, while Beth's son Martin camouflages his grief under a bombastic heartiness that reduces his girlfriend Ella to tearful catatonia.
Beth, who obviously has a tense relationship with Connie, is more concerned about the disappearance of the family cat, Wagstaff. Unexpectedly, the local vicar, David, calls to offer his condolences and a prayer. But, just as Beth looks ready to embrace a new life, she finds herself subject to a spine-tingling visitation.
