Meet Seymour, the safest man in Britain. An insurance consultant who wears a belt and braces (and another belt, just to be sure). He’s in last chance saloon and everything rests on this one important conference call. What could possibly go wrong? Enter Marvin, a bungling burglar with bad knees…
With Seymour’s highly neurotic actress wife Gloria awaiting news on a star TV role, the burglar’s psychopathic crime boss around the corner and a share of the £30 billion insurance market at stake, will our heroes and their octopus get out alive?
