Angel Delight is the illegitimate daughter of a funeral director, and
inherits the undertaker's premises when he dies. But... there's a gotcha in
his will. Before she can sell the business and the
land (which is much more valuable than the business!) she is required to keep the funeral
parlour open for a further five years.
Unfortunately, she knows absolutely nothing about the
funeral business... but rather a lot about prostitution.
So Angel and her team of 'girls' (including the obsessive-compulsive transvestite
Delilah) decide to use the undertaker's premises as a front for a massage
parlour. But they have to keep their personal services hidden from the prying
eyes of a disgruntled former employee who feels he should have inherited the
funeral business. Add suspenders, death by misadventure and some
"unorthodox" embalming techniques and you have all the ingredients
for a riotous evening.
