Synopsis : A hilarious comedy about two lovable rogues in Cork city who dream of riches when they learn of a haul of cocaine being washed ashore in West Cork, setting in motion a chain of capers involving a series of characters. Inspired by the true story of Ireland's biggest cocaine seizure in 2007, the film uses anecdotes from a trip the writer/director made to West Cork in his youth. It can also be described as a road movie with a difference, on stolen bikes, with one sub-plot involving a totally inept Garda Sergeant. This film grossed €1m plus at the Irish box office!
The actor Chris Walley will attend!
