Helen Fortuno, an Italian living in London, has not heard from her brother Frank for two years. She receives a cryptic postcard from him with enough informaiton for her to track him down to a Buddhist retreat in Scotland. Along for the ride is London girl Sylvia who is using Helen's search for her brother as her chance to leave her psycho husband Gordon.
Arriving at the monastry, they are told by a monk that Frank, failing to fit in, has moved on with tantric student Fiona. At Fiona's cottage they find Fiona has been abandoned by Frank and has a baby daughter by him. Frank has gone to live on the coast but when Helen confronts Frank's ex-beach buddy Joe, she realises that Frank doesn't want to be found. Meanwhile, Sylvia takes a fancy to kilted barman Davie and invites him along. Helen feels Davie is slowing them down and provokes him into parting with them. The two women, now followed by a mysterious Man in Black, continue on their search for Frank and encounter the Jeweller, Sunshine and Sophie, who guide Helen to the Drummer Girl, a forger who has given Frank a new identity - Sid Arthur.
When the Drummer Girl is murdered, Sylvia realises they are involved in something bigger than just looking for Helen's brother.
