Lord Emsworth, eccentric pig-breeder and scion of the English aristocracy, shares his stately home, Blandings, with his sister, Lady Constance, his younger brother, Galahad, and his pig, the Empress of Blandings. His dream is to be left alone with Empress the pig, but family disputes imperil that dream. A nephew asks permission to marry a dancer, a disreputable brother blackmails Lady Constance by threatening to publish scandalous memoirs and Lord Emsworth is sure someone is trying to steal his Empress.
