Art is an independent film-maker with big ideas... sadly nobody will listen to these ideas, with the exception of his best friend Jones. The series follows Art as his overactive imagination... See full summary »
In a suburb of London, young Jamie is escaping sport hours, to avoid being the victim of his comrades. Young Ste, his neighbor, is beaten by his father, and comes to sleep overnight. They discover new feelings, sleeping in the same bed.
After a drunken house party with his straight mates, Russell heads out to a gay club. Just before closing time he picks up Glen but what's expected to be just a one-night stand becomes something else, something special.
This one scores for plot alone. Although our hero is in a dead end job, he seems to have no problem pulling tasty girlfriends, but his current one has a fiery temper, and shortly after she turns up on his doorstep with her suitcase, they have a blazing row. He tells her to get out, but it is he who leaves, giving her a shove as he closes the front door. When he returns, she is lying dead on the carpet, having banged her head. What to do now? He summonses his faithful friend, borrows his car, and takes the body out in the sticks to bury it.
Nothing out of the ordinary so far, but as he is about to finish digging the grave, he has a big shock, there is another body in it already, a skeleton. He finishes what he started, recovers from the shock, and reports the dead girl missing. Then a woman is out walking her dog when...yeah, he should have dug deeper, but it's too late now. The other body is identified as the wife of a councillor who disappeared eight years previously. He is pulled in by the police but not as a suspect as he would have been only seventeen when the first murder was committed. The widower of the first victim is now running for high political office, and this is where it gets really complicated. A photograph of his wife is planted in our hero's apartment which is duly raided, so now he is the prime suspect in two murders, but guess what, it was the councillor who actually committed the first murder, as he finds out at the police station.
Next, he hits on a bizarre plan which sees him and his trusty helper break into the councillor's home, force him to drink a large quantity of alcohol, and ingest sleeping pills. The crazy idea is to fake a suicide attempt - complete with noose and suicide note typed on his computer - then he will presumably take the rap for both murders. But they are disturbed by the detective on the case, who seeing the councillor lying on the floor half dead, finishes the job.
As if that isn't enough, there are a couple of other twists. This film is described as black comedy; the script won't make you laugh, but you won't be sorry you watched it.
