A comedy of accidents, life, death, the universe, and a bad corner on the road to Nhill, the story begins with three cars filled with women bowlers on their way home to the Victorian town of Pyramid Hill (population 550) after a tournament. When one of the cars and its four occupants don't return, the town embarks on a chaotic course of action to try to solve the mystery. Meanwhile, the four missing women bowlers, whose car has rolled on the deserted road, are coping fairly well--that is, until the local men and emergency services start trying to help.
