Storyline

Billy and Stan are two security van personnel who go about their daily lives. Billy is a slow minded yet soft hearted guy while his friend Stan is an even more slow witted bloke who's behavior borders on that of an infantile delinquent. Stan has been having a romance with Frances, an Ornithologist who he has been speaking with on his CB radio. Frances is on a bird watching expedition in the South Atlantic on the Falklands with her partner Cathy, a selfish, vain woman who drives Frances around the bend. When Billy announces to Frances, a woman he has never seen that he wishes to marry her, all he hears from her end are panic stricken shrieks. Billy, believing that an Argentinian dictator and his soldiers have invaded the Falklands plans with the help of Billy to hold the manager of a Bank and his estranged wife hostage. It's an attempt to steal enough cash to mount a daring rescue mission. But a couple of hiccups means that things don't exactly run smoothly. Written by Robert McElwaine
