A strict judge, two ambitious lawyers and three siblings in trouble are to divide the estate of a deceased. Not only are different interpretations of the will negotiated, the sense and nonsense of inheritance discussed and family feuds fought out, but witnesses are also heard: friendly policemen, a very friendly nurse and a thirsty doctor. The lawyers involved conduct the trial with a great deal of circumspection and professional detachment, until they too reach their limits and the siblings fall into a frenzy of affect, which has no place at all in a civil trial, not least for the deceased.
