Francis is so obsessed with owning his stepbrother’s house in Dorset, that he takes advantage of the man’s weak heart and causes him to have a fatal heart attack when he smashes his stepbrother’s treasured violin. Once in possession of the property Francis begins to hallucinate and believes he can still hear the violin playing in the house. The hallucinations worsen and Francis becomes a victim of his own weak heart.A series of ghostly narratives inspired by The Dead of Night (1945) are tied to the main plot.
