Dex works as a gardener for Dr Jefferson at his home on Hexam Place in Pimlico. The hired help, a motley assortment of au pairs, drivers and cleaners, decide to form the Saint Zita Society as an excuse to meet at the local pub and air their grievances. When Dex is invited, the others find that he is a strange man, seemingly ill at ease with human beings. These first impressions are compounded when they discover he has recently been released from a hospital for the criminally insane, where he was incarcerated for attempting to kill his own mother.
