Hint is the story of ten eccentric weekend guests who gather to hear the will of their late friend Uncle Willy, only to find that he has squandered away his fortune, and hidden his last treasure somewhere in his estate. When Willy’s last living heir is murdered, they conspire to find the treasure and keep it for themselves. But who will make it out alive?
