In that case you can define set_them() directly in the base class and omit set_them from klass:

class base:
   def set_them(self, a, b, c, d):
     self.a = a
     # etc

I'm guessing here, but if a, b, c, d are the same variables defined in your original somefile.py, 
and the intent is to make them attributes of the klass instance, you could do something like this 
and avoid listing all the arguments to klass.set_them():

## somefile.py
a = 222
b = 111
c = 9

def set_them(obj):
   obj.a = a
   obj.b = b
   obj.c = c

## anotherfile.py

import somefile
class klass:
   def set_them(self):
