Frustrated filmmaker Barry Lick attempts to make a documentary about a businessman, who he believes is involved in property rackets, prostitution, pornography, and drugs. For security reasons Barry never uses the real name of this businessman, but calls him Ray Topham. Barry recruits a team of young wannabees. Their quest leads them to two of Ray’s associates; a local cocaine supplier, an ex-S&M porn actress called Joanne Miller, and the charmingly psychopathic Tommy Morghen who acts as Ray’s personal security consultant. These associates soon realise that Barry is out of his depth, and exploit him for their own purposes – with both hilarious and tragic results.
