    • Synopsis
    • An art theft is triggered for a manhunt with the result that a group of very different characters meet in a deserted farm.
      Driven by greed-because of the inestimable value of the object- the characters come in a confrontation against each other.
      The credit crunch has further impoverished the social class.
      The seedy Dunne Dennis (Skinny Dennis) is well known in and around the ports of Rotterdam Harbour gets through an Dutch art smuggler inside information about a Byzantine art object thats aboard on a Greek freighter in transit to The British Museum of London. During the heist Skinny Dennis confronts with the guards of the ship. He knows (badly injured) to escape with the object of inestimable value.
      Hunted by the media and authorities Skinny Dennis starts his hazardous ride on his way to an intermediary to deliver (according to plan) the art icon for his reward of 50,000 euros. The object is, however, worth millions of euros. Because Skinny Dennis trusts nobody he involves his girlfriend Lisa to find a way out . Skinny Dennis becomes an unwanted matter in this shady art theft.
      The rightful owner of the stolen object, a Turkish Cypriot private collector and billionaire, puts a massive manhunt on rope to get his beloved icon and the fugitive Skinny Dennis.
      A group of local wise guys tracks Skinny Dennis down at an abandoned farm annex Animal Practice. Dennis is forced to hide and seek treatment there because of his wound.
      The widow (Ma Baker type) and owner of the farm (the farm is taken over by the local bank and project developers) has gotten air of the case via the news and has other intentions than nursing Skinny Dennis . The unannounced visit of four dangerous men is therefore not desirable. The mother and her simple-minded son however, don't allow themselves to be intimidated by the dangerous gangsters and are taking the helm in their own hands. Completely surprised and unfamiliar with rural scenes, the hoodlums are hunted down like wild animals. The homicidal son and mother are willing to do everything in order to obtain the main prize and now it's time to take care of Skinny Dennis and Lisa.
      Always closed from the outside world, however, the simple mindend son reveals no longer the intention of following orders from his evil mother when his attention goes to the very attractive Lisa.
