ROMIE AND PACK are best friends who dream of becoming mechanics and escaping their boring jobs as security guards. They’ve been saving their salaries and plan to make a down payment on a garage in their village of Pickletons. But their efforts are being challenged on all sides: by their loving but eccentric families, a violent drug dealer, a charity collector and a still-obsessed ex-girlfriend. The boys will have to go to extreme measures to keep their dream alive.
