Synopsis

Conman Leo (John Hannah) and his glamorous wife, Lily (Famke Janssen), are the coolest of couples. They dream of an escape from the drudge of everyday crime in the seamy underbelly of Brighton. They want out. Leo and Lily are going for the dream, the one way boat trip to Cuba!

The scam of a lifetime is about to begin with Leo wildly turning the tables to keep one step ahead in this web of deceit and intrigue. Drawn into the net is a sadistic bookie call Troy (Eddie Izzard) who is chasing Leo for repayment of his betting debts, while a simple-minded Goliath called Moose (Tiny Lister) is looking for his girlfriend and asks Leo to help. Added to this is Bruno (Brian Conley), Leo's father figure and fitness-freak gang boss who is out to play another game by another set of rules - and don't forget the eccentric convert to fashion, Julius (Peter Stormare) who along with Leo and Lily is caught up in the most dangerous game of all, the game of cross, double cross and triple cross. It's insane, but it's the only game in town.
