Two teenage boys formulate an ingenious scheme to get rich quick by forging personal injury claims. Sadly their attempts to sustain suitable injuries, by falling off ladders and “spilling” hot coffee don’t quite go to plan. They also have to contend with Colin, an impatient solicitor with his own economic agenda. This fast-paced comedy combines witty and charming dialogue with a generous dose of slapstick and people falling off ladders.
This film was produced and directed by myself and Alistair McMeekin. It was made possible thanks to a bursary from the Roundhouse / Ex Amino Foundation.
