Based on the play by Paul Tucker. Comedy set in Leicester and London, about an overweight, unemployed fantasist who, when he is thrown out by his mother, rents a room in a rundown bed and breakfast boarding house. His claims that he once served in the SAS lead to his being hired as a hitman by one of the landlord's sons to revenge the injury to his brother, who is brain-damaged and wheelchair-bound after a fight with a London hardman.
