Mrs. Moss and her ever-faithful butler, Rhett, have been struggling to keep Moss Manor open but have finally decided to sell and move on. An unusual assortment of prospective buyers arrive, including ladies from the local preservation society; a toilet paper magnet; and a colorful hillbilly trio who claim they're distant relatives of Mother Moss. As the brokering becomes more competitive, word reaches the inn of an escaped murderer possibly heading this way--none other than Dr. Charles Hoarse, a former guest Mother Moss helped send to jail years ago--though no one recognizes him now as he tries to pass himself off as a woman! The vigilant local police inspectors are on the job protecting the inn when a body suddenly turns up! Everyone is a suspect until a strange turn of events has the killer unmask himself to the next victim.
