Synopsis

John Whittaker, a young Englishman, falls madly in love with Larita, a sexy and glamorous American woman, and they marry impetuously.  However when they return to his family home, his mother, Mrs Whittaker, has an instant allergic reaction to her new daughter-in-law.

Larita tries to fit in but fails to tiptoe through the minefield laid by her mother-in-law. A battle of wits ensues and sparks soon fly.  Before long, Mrs. Whittaker’s manipulation starts to work on John and Larita feels their love is in danger of slipping away but she won’t give up without a fight.
