This well-known black comedy centres around dear old Mum, a woman whose concern for her sons leads her to a possessiveness that is ? like her ? thoroughly evil. ?Mum glories in destroying anything that is good and kind and pure: for, not being able to enjoy such feelings herself, she is damned if anyone else will. And yet, like the Devil, she has undeniable charm?. Mum is the head of the family building firm and insists that her sons work to standards that are too low to even be called jerry-built!
As the family comes together to celebrate her wedding anniversary (regardless of the fact that Dad is long deceased), revolt is in the air and the women in her sons? lives decide to tackle Mum and her long ascendancy head on.
