Drinking heavily, stuck as the cook for a trendy rock club, and nagged by his visiting mother, Sam Neill desperately hopes that a romance with Sophie (Carides), a Greek-Cypriot barmaid, will alter his luck. Instead, the death of his drug-dealing Turkish washer-up embroils him in a black comic nightmare involving an inconvenient body, a sadistic bouncer, and Sophie's club-owner fiancé. This being a comedy, though, Neill eventually 'sees the light' and resolves to change his life. A likeably offbeat and often surprisingly dark comedy thriller, set amid a seldom acknowledged working class ethnic community.
