In Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut, three retired members of an opera quartet—Cissy (Pauline Collins), Wilf (Billy Connolly) and Reginald (Tom Courtenay)—live in Beecham House retirement home and perform a concert every year for Giuseppe Verdi’s birthday.

However, when Reginald’s ex-wife and the fourth and most famous member of the quartet, Jean (Maggie Smith), arrives at Beecham, rivalries stir and temperaments clash, making it unknown if the show will go on.
