Two couples live side by side in identical houses. On the outside Ned is a confident demolitions expert: on the inside he's a mess. He is the victim of increasingly bizarre but recurrent theft, and his marriage to Joy is running out of steam. Eventually he is usurped by his neighbour, and Joy deserts him - literally and metaphorically.
