Plot of film
27 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

A gang of criminals hide a bag of jewels onboard an empty barge. The story follows the happenings of the local community & what happens when two models move onto the barge, helped by a local salvage operator. Much of the action is seen from the upstairs room of a pair of old ladies who view the action as quite exciting in their normally quiet neighbourhood.
