Somewhere in the middle of Ireland, at some time in the not too distant past. In the middle of nowhere, during a heatwave, a strange family of women is locked into darkened rooms. they are mourning the death of their father, the last man to have entered the house. One of the rooms contains their grandmother, who their mother says is mad. Every so often she escapes. Mother reckons that eight years of mourning should be enough. By the time that is over, some of them will be old. A man has come looking for a rich wife. One of the daughters is an heiress. All of them want to escape.
