When the wealthy widow Cookie decides to take her own life, her niece Camille, wanting to hide the shame of suicide, simulates a murder. Unfortunately, everyone believes her, and she becomes the leading suspect. This is one of Altman's funniest films.

Distinguished director, screenwriter and producer Robert Altman was born in 1925 and died in 2006 having made several dozen cinema and television films. The breakthrough in his career came with the anti-war satire MASH, in which he presented a community in typical Altman style that characterises his very best work – based on episodic narration and innovative montage of image and sound. Altman often uses irony to show how society’s traditional roles, social conventions and cultural myths condition people.
