May, his clever, passive wife loves Alfred but conspires against him. Their three children are no longer close; the elder son has left for America and the youngest son is a virulent racist.

Spoiled, sexy Lottie heads off to the opera, husband Harold listens to jazz and their ditsy teenage daughter Lola fights capitalism by bunking off to school. Shirley takes her twin boys to the zoo. The Government declares the floods are over and announces a spectacular City Gala complete with tigers, fireworks, hip-hop stars and even a guest spot by the ever-smiling President himself."
