When student Alan moves into an attic flat, he does not expect to find it already inhabited by someone else. The Mysterious Phillip claims to be the son of an African chief with ten wives waiting for him back home, but his presence is the least of Alan’s worries.
He also has to contend with a hole in the floor, water running down the walls and sinister landlord Rigsby, who has designs on Miss Jones downstairs, who herself has developed a passion for Phillip.
