Fired from his newspaper, cantankerous, boozy drama critic Ted Wallace seeks a few months repose and free drink at Swafford Hall, the home of his old friend Lord Logan. But strange things have been going on there - miracles and healings - phenomena beyond the ken of a mud-caked hippopotamus like Ted.
