|They didn't know where he came from. They didn't know his name. They didn't care. But when Kevin, the high plains drifter of the inner city blew into town on the back of a bad ride they knew they needed him.
Rock, Sal, Nach and Space were small-time crooks with big-time aspirations working from a back street garage. Out of the blue, their leader Rock is offered the big break, a bank job, by veteran gangster Boo. Desperate to find a fifth man, Rock hooks the stranger with food and a place to stay and Kevin becomes their innocent accomplice.
Sal and Nach think things could have been handled more democratically and as soon as they pluck up the courage, they'll sort Rock out. Space will go along with anything, as his mum wants him home early.
This is the tragicomic tale of the struggle for success by the would-be desperadoes. Each driven by their own particular image of a hero, they show themselves to be but pale imitations of their ideals and idols.
A dark humor emerges from the trials and tribulations of their close but troubled brotherhood. We see through Kevin's eyes, the last days before the job that changes their lives.
Editor's NoteAn energetic, raw and darkly comic British picture about a gang of toughs who are offered a chance at the perfect heist. Winner of the Best Film Award at the 1996 Film Fest in Gijon, Spain.
