A disillusioned video shop assistant exaggerates on her Dream Date profile and becomes lured into a flirtatious chat with a mysterious subscriber, Dr. Sugarloaf. Veronica’s romantic imagination merges the online conversation with a vintage 'James Bond' style movie playing on the video shop TV. Meanwhile, a sinister figure lurks behind the online chat, so who is Dr. Sugarloaf?
Music by Mallabar Film (Music) Producer / Director Daredevil drummer and Casanova of the Castanets Angelina Tout has failed yet another audition to play drums with his favourite band The Zen Hussies... this indignation has caused his love for the band to turn most sour, and he is driven by bitterness to set about sabotaging their performances by any means possible... alas two things stand in the way of him successfully thwarting the West Country's Most Exclusive Drinking Club; 1) His love of liquor and ladies, and 2) the band's merciless minder and welterweight pugilist Jimmy The Mack McDonnell, who is ever at hand with his instruments of torture to ensure that THE SHOW MUST GO ON! Jonah Flatfoot and his merry band of Zen Hussies make whoopee throughout against all odds - culminating in a truly explosive performance and a stylish getaway to their next gig...
