    • Synopsis
    • A fast moving romantic comedy film about two young Liverpool brothers on the adventure of a lifetime.
      The brothers are going to live every boy’s dream – They are going to get the beautiful girl, the car, and the money!
      Billy, the dreamer, and his younger brother Leckie, the realist, are going nowhere. Leckie works as a Beatles lookalike in the Liverpool Beatles Museum and Billy lives his life likes he’s Al Pacino in Scarface. Their relationship is a neat echo on Lennon and McCartney – the wild unconnentional one and the thoughtful careful one.
      All crazy Billy needs is a plan. All Leckie needs is to stay away from his lunatic brother.
      John Lennon’s Sixties psychedelic Rolls Royce is being displayed in the Beatles Museum. It is valued at three million pounds!
      Meanwhile in Marbella - Chris “The Scarecrow Cairn, a 40 something volatile gangster with a sacry reputation, has agreed to acquire the Lennon Rolls Royce for a rich African car collector. As we meet him He’s having a mid-life crisis. He decides this is to be his last job.
      He recruits one of his regular car jockeys, Billy, to steal the car and bring it to Marbella. He gives Billy three days to deliver it in one piece.
      Billy forces Leckie to come with him for the ride. They steal the Rolls Royce form The Beatles Museum in Liverpool and are soon driving on their way through the fantastic landscapes of central Spain.
      Things get even better when almost immediately they rescue a beautiful Spanish girl, Maria who’s on the run from her own shotgun wedding.
      The two brothers naturally fall in love with the gorgeous Maria and start to compete for her affections. She is a free spirit looking for a good time.
      Leckie is really in love with the girl. Billy is just desperate to sleep with her. Billy finally agrees to coach his brother in the art of seduction.
      The three of them have a wild time as they drive through Spain. But tensions are beginning to creep in as the boys argue and fight. She is coming between them and playing them off each othet – This girl has her own agenda.
      Meanwhile, a tense Chris and his dopey young assistant Jack wait in Marbella in a rundown garage for the Rolls Royce to arrive. They begin to get on each other’s nerves as Chris seems to be cracking up under the pressure and Jack suspects something is very, very, wrong with this legendary and feared crime figure.
      Maria soon turns out to be not the innocent village girl she appears. She wants the car for herself, and we discover she is in cahoots with Jack. They intend to hijack the car themesleves from the boys and double croos Chris .
      Billy now under Maria’s bewitching spell abandons poor Leckie and the two of them drive off like a latter-day Bonnie and Clyde.
      Chris figures out that Jack is going to double cross him and steal the Lennon car – He now plans to show Jack why he is nicknamed “The Scarecrow”. It’s not pretty.
      Chris arranges to ambush Jack and take back the car.
      The film climaxes in a spectacular Spaghetti western style shootout between all our characters in the village square whilst the yearly carnival takes place. It is everything Billy has dreamed about. He gets to be the hero. Only he discovers when dreams meet reality he is scared witless.
      It’s left up to Leckie to ride into town and save the day – The reluctant hero must take on the Chris and his hoods and jack and Maria and save his crazy brother. Again!
