    • Synopsis
    • Frustrated accountant Darren tries to spice up his life by attending life-drawing classes. Unknown to him, the class is in fact a front for a contract-killing racket, run by Katrina, who mistakes him for a professional assassin.
      Following a mix-up with brochures, genuine hit-man Barry goes to an entirely innocent cake decorating class. When given details of an equipment supplier, he believes this is the man he must kill.
      Darren pays a visit to Vic "the squealer" Collins, thinking he is meant to draw him naked, but accidentally kills him with a pencil, fleeing the scene, but raising his standing with Katrina. She believes he is the ideal candidate for the big one: the killing of the men who murdered her husband and brother four years ago.
      Meanwhile, undercover detective Anna has been posing as a life model, and recognises Darren's sketchpad left at Vic's flat. She befriends him, and tries to learn the identity of his next assignments. She drinks too much and passes out. Darren finds her gun and believes she is a villain who has tracked him down following Vic's death.
      Darren and Anna go with Barry to Tony, the cake supplier, who Barry stabs. Anna reveals she is a detective, and Barry captures her, trying to kill her with a circular saw, only to be stopped by not-quite-dead-yet Tony.
      Barry is revealed to be the killer of Katrina's husband and brother. He is arrested, asked to name the ringleader, but erroneously points the finger at his cake class tutor.
