Having served time for crooked husband Roy, Ellie Lagden fits him up, helped by ex-cellmates Shoo, Hannah and Josie. Their plan is to escape to Barbados but the contact with the fake passports drops down dead. So they take their suitcase containing three million pounds to remote Scots village Hope Springs, buying the run-down hotel from Sadie Cairncross. Ellie sees this as the perfect opportunity to lie low whilst arranging new passports. Sadie's daughter Ann Marie is not happy at the sale, nor, for undisclosed reasons is solicitor Euan Harries. Even less happy are Ellie and her friends when Euan's tearaway son sets fire to the hotel after Ellie bars him. Village cop Gil, engaged to Anne Marie, saves Ellie but the money goes up in smoke!
