With the Great War raging on the Continent, philanthropist Emily Inglethorp helps resettle war refugees in the English countryside. Among them is Hercule Poirot, formerly of the Belgian police. When Mrs. Inglethorp is murdered, Poirot launches his career as a private detective, using his "little grey cells" to sift the motives of the mysterious husband, the cash-strapped stepson, the poison expert, and the rest of the household. Poirot and Hastings join forces for their very first case in this new adaptation of Agatha Christie's first novel.
