    • Synopsis
    • Carlson is a man lost. He has just come out of a long term relationship with absolutely nothing. All he wants is somewhere quiet and cost effective to contemplate his future. And he thinks he has found it when he is given the post of Live-In Guardian at a 200 year old townhouse in East London. But his quiet is soon shattered when he finds the house is far from empty. Aside from the unexpected presence of career Live-In Guardian and general big mouth Lavender Carlson also discovers that an ancient curse hangs over the house. A curse that says that anyone who resides under it's roof shall never find happiness. Whilst doubting the curses validity Carlson can't deny that the house is weird and someone is watching them. And his fears are proven to be well founded when the house comes under siege from a group of criminals seeking the treasure from which the curse stems. And so Carlson along with his ex-girlfriend, her dog, the estate agent and Lavender all find themselves in a fight for their lives. And fingers.
