'Dave Regan and his best mate Jim Bently are well known in the district as horsemen and odd-job men who can spin a good yarn with the best of them. When Ma Middleton's husband passes away they hit on the grand idea of digging for gold underneath his grave, which just happens to be above a rumoured mineshaft. When Ma discovers the plot she is outraged.'
