Synopsis

Mickey and Joe, two impoverished actors, live in Glasgow. They have serious debts and they can't get any acting work because of their attitude - they want David Mamet plays but they only get offered pantomime. On an impulse they decide to flee the city and get on a plane to Los Angeles - after all their best mate Steve assures them they will find fame, fortune and women.

Upon arriving in LA they instantly look out of place and Steve is not doing as well in Hollywood as he pretended: he works for a studio but as a cleaner. The 'luxury pad' in Hollywood Hills turns out to be a battered old roadie bus.

Undeterred, they begin to audition for no-hope films and so begin their desperate escapades through LA, which eventually lead them to Las Vegas in the hope of earning enough money to fulfil their dreams.
