Following on from Death On The Nile, Belgian detective Hercule Poirot (played by director Branagh) is enjoying retired life in Venice. When his friend, the bestselling American mystery author Ariadne Oliver (played by Tina Fey) persuades him to come to a Halloween party, things take a turn towards the macabre.
