When Mr and Mrs Peach’s neighbours emigrate to Australia,
they leave the grieving Peaches anxiously twitching the net curtains
of their suburban home wondering who will arrive next door. The
new neighbours, Mr and Mrs Chapman, prove to be far from the ideal
couple the Peaches had dreamed of. They are loud, rude and aggressive.
Mr Peach takes an instant dislike to the "flash" Chapmans
aggravated by the fact that, as a desperately bad salesman, he is
getting deeper and deeper into debt. Mr Peach is struggling to hold
onto his job, his house and his mind and as the bills mount up and
the creditors move in he begins to slip further and further into
his own interior world, obsessing about the new neighbours and increasingly
perceiving them as the enemy.
It is not long before he is spying on their every move, making
complaints against them, even damaging their property. The Chapmans,
outraged at his "interfering, busybody" behaviour, begin
to retaliate, until both sets of neighbours are caught up in an
intensifying feud. Their problems escalate out of all proportion
and when Mr Chapman dares to stamp on Mr Peach’s prize winning
pansies a fight breaks out in the garden and Chapman beats up Peach.
Mr Peach finally deems his neighbours responsible for all his problems
and in one final conflict, decides to make them pay.
