When their hotel-bound bus crashes in a mountain storm and Joan is injured, the travellers seek refuge in the home, built fortress-like upon the site of a bloody battlefield, of famed architect Hjalmar Poelzig. There, cat-phobic Verdegast learns his wife's fate, grieves for his lost daughter, and must play a game of chess for Allison's life.

Description: The henpecked Harold Bissonnette dreams of owning a orange grove in California but his wife won't hear of it. He currently runs, not very successfully, a small fruit and vegetable store where he seemingly can never have on hand the stock that people want to buy. Coming into an inheritance he buys a farm sight unseen and soon the family heads off to California. At first blush, his investment seems to have been for naught: the farm was abandoned long ago and has long been considered inadequate for growing oranges. All seems lost until someone comes along with another use for the land.
