Dale and Terry are very happy in their relationship, but both men hate their jobs. When the death of a distant relation drops a six-million-dollar windfall into Dale's lap, they decide to buy a lovely bed and breakfast on secluded Wolf's Head Island, Maine, and make a go of being innkeepers. For the New Year holiday season, Terry comes up with the idea of offering a "Murder Mystery Weekend" package. The venerable inn has a full house when an unexpected blizzard roars in, isolating the island from the rest of the world. But plans go ahead as scheduled... until they discover that the murder mystery may be more real than Dale and Terry had planned.
