Monica is kingpin in her picture perfect world until Dr Dick, her mum's new friend, comes to stay for one disaster filled weekend. As Monica’s pets, Speedy the tortoise, Kevin the budgie and Brian Rabbit meet untimely and dramatic ends, Monica becomes convinced that Dr Dick is responsible. She recreates the crime scenes and decides that the only way to keep the other pets alive is to get rid of him.
