In this comical murder mystery, three playwrights use $500 in advance money to get an apartment in which to write a mystery. A drunken neighbor staggers in and interrupts their brainstorming before passing out on the floor. The three playwrights then pretend that he is really dead and begin trying to figure out how it might have happened. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, the drunk ends up dead for real and now the writers have some real work to do.
