Story: A 1920s English seaside town bears witness to a dark, absurd scandal in this riotous mystery comedy, which follows two neighbours: deeply-conservative local Edith Swan and rowdy Irish migrant Rose Gooding. When Edith and fellow residents start to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, foul-mouthed Rose is charged with the crime. The anonymous letters prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues. However, as the town's women, led by Police Officer Gladys Moss, begin to investigate the crime themselves, they suspect that something is amiss and Rose might not be the culprit after all.
