Synopsis

On a blazing hot day in London two unlikely friends set out on a mission.

Smiggy is an idiotic show-off who claims to have been in the army. Philip is a simple yet well-meaning supermarket shelf-stacker whose one ambition is to avenge his brother, who was left in a permanent vegetative state after a senseless attack by the psychopathic Darrel. On the day Darrel is released from jail, Philip and Smiggy set out to track him down, armed with the only weapon they can afford, a rusty old revolver which may or may not be loaded.

Unfortunately there are some holes in the ever-confident Smiggy's plans. He doesn't know that the Notting Hill Carnival starts today and that Darrel's foul-mouthed sexpot fiancée Julie is hoarding a large amount of stolen cocaine. Most importantly, Smiggy doesn't know about the effects of taking pure cocaine for the first time.

With the arrival of a drug-dealer from Reigate, a posse of angry Yardies and a crazed traffic warden, the scene is set for a very messy showdown as Philip and Smiggy determinedly try to deliver rough justice amongst the chaos.
