The sleepy staff of Macpherson's traditional Scottish tweed firm get a rude awakening when young Macpherson (Robert Morley) hires feisty American efficiency expert Angela Barrows (Constance Cummings).

Beneath that placid surface, still waters run deep; to balance the books, he decides, he must erase the 'error'...
