Max Falcon (Garry McDonald) is a pompous and immensely popular actor who stars in "Freud The Musical" in this offbeat comedy. His wife Marilyn (Pamela Stephenson) is having an affair with her Polish chauffeur Richard (Marian Dworakowski). The two conspire to murder Max by putting broken glass in his food, by assassination, and by poisoning his drink. The drink is consumed by his manager Norda (Su Cruickshank), who dies as a result. Max is finally killed off but is allowed to return to Earth as a ghost to settle some unfinished business.
