A farce about the changing nature of work
Mr Lightvessel, an estate agent, who is also a volunteer lifeboatman, tries to stay solvent in the face of a frozen house market. Already paying his staff so little they have to sign on as well as working, he strives to complete a chain of sales that will save his business. Unfortunately the vital link in the chain is a dole-fraud investigator.
