Set in the idyllic town of Mumford, the inventive story revolves around a local psychologist, curiously named Dr. Mumford. His no-nonsense approach to therapy and his uncanny insights into the human condition have made Dr. Mumford somewhat of a hero with the quirky locals, almost all of whom are in his care. While he's the caretaker of town secrets, no one realises Dr. Mumford has a whopper of his own. Not until he begins treating the beautiful and troubled Sofie Crisp does Dr. Mumford start to reexamine his own past. Meanwhile, a hilarious sequence of events involving his patients threatens to expose the truth and tear him away from Sofie forever.
