Following his doctor's advice, the man decides to get away from the city noise. Together with his sister Joanna, he rents a house in a small village of Lymstock. But the place doesn't seem as quiet as they had expected. Very soon, the Burtons get a rude anonymous letter hinting they are not really brother and sister.
