Overview

Meet three couples in their three kitchens on the Christmas Eves of three successive years. The "lower class" but very much up and coming Hopcrofts are in their bright new, gadget filled kitchen anxiously giving a little party for their bank manager and his wife and an architect neighbor.

In the final stages the little man is well and truly on top, with the others, literally and unnervingly, dancing to his tune.
