Synopsis

In three weeks the two surviving members of the Ashby family will receive their inheritance. Eleanor Ashby, a weak, nervous character since the horrific accident, adamantly swears she has seen her dead brother Tony. Her brother, Simon reinforces her own doubts about her sanity, knowing that if she were committed he would receive all of the legacy. But brother Tony does appear and Simon is determined to get rid of both. This is a story with a psychotic twist about greed, hatred and death.
