Synopsis

When five ordinary guys from a Welsh fishing village are offered the deal of a lifetime all hell breaks loose. This hilarious plot follows Barry and his friends as they smuggle drugs worth ten million pounds in cod shipped to London. The deal was simple, the Firm's boss Mr MacAvoy sends two of his men on a stakeout to recover the rest of the drugs. The two kidnap a prized sheep from one of the Welsh gang, shave it and dress it in women’s underwear and tie it to a bed. A ransom note with a photo is left at the farm. When a coach load of unsuspecting Japanese tourists arrive at the village and purchase cod with the missing cocaine inside, it only makes things worse. The London Firm are convinced the tourists are Yakuza, Japanese mafia trying to muscle in on the deal.

When Barry and his friends take a trip to London dressed as gangsters they manage to save Agnes the sheep and con their way out of the deal. When a London Firm writes off five million pounds how would you spend it?
