While performing a human sacrifice, a tribe called the Mud People follows a rolling croquet ball into a deserted mansion, where a mysterious change occurs: The primitives are suddenly transformed into refined individuals attending an elegant dinner party in the 1930s. The group includes a songwriter, a hostess, a capitalist, a man dressed as a woman, a debutante and a limping man. The first American release from Merchant-Ivory productions.
