On the road with the new, dead-beat generation. Wild, crazy, funny, and original.
Roland Bamber’s demands for money force four friends to flee London in a Mark II Ford Transit. They surface on a container ship, the Jolly Condor, bound for Sicily. Unfortunately, someone has secretly cut them into a deal with Bamber, and unbeknown to them, they’re carrying heroin. They set up a mobile disco, and impress the ship’s captain, although he jettisons them in Sicily where they’re met by armed La Guardia who discover the heroin. They escape and head for a bar where Bamber ambushes them.
Surviving the ambush, they secure a gig at a naturist camp, where they meet more London escapees, and a CIA agent, Zendrowski, who’s investigating drug trafficking. He loses patience with lack of evidence and abandons them. An England international soccer pro, Nathan Ryan, rescues them, and schedules them for his sports bar, Golden Balls, in Spain. Their gear is destroyed when England lose to Germany in the World Cup Final, and they return to London, and their old pub, the Marquis of Queensbury, which is being refurbished as a gastro-pub. They discover the basement is full of Bamber’s counterfeiting equipment. When the Marquis opening night is underway, Bamber looms carrying an automatic rifle.
