We All Have Our Skeletons
Palma, Majorca. Hugo is playing minder to his slightly daffy old mother. His elder sister should have joined them, but reneged. She resents him ever since, as a boy of 6, he had a brief career in films. It should have been her.One morning Mum is ‘caught short’, and in the village where they stop, a local Englishwoman interprets for them. No sooner has she gone than Hugo discovers she is housekeeper to the star of his first movie, Marina Mackay. He dashes after her and identifies himself. The alarmed woman and her husband/chauffeur tell him that Miss Mackay never receives visitors, and drive off. Leaving Hugo to ponder. Suppose Marina is their prisoner? Who will be any the wiser? He resolves to discover the truth.
