Its 1971 and Frankie 'the fuller' Fingers and John 'Duggs' McGee have the plans to make it rich! How do they plan to do it? Well by robbing a bank of course. It's Brilliant... Its a stroke of genius …. its a...a.... Its a bad plan! Unknown to Frankie and Duggs the one weekend they plan this amazing hiest just happens to be on the same weekend as their high school reunion in the hotel they are staying in.
Its been 6 years since Barrington Green's class of '65 have seen one another and their high school reunion pulls them all together at The Grand Hotel, but nothing much has changed or has it?
Since being apart Tony has completed his law degree and just about to start as a lawyer, at least that's his finance Veronica's plan. However the high school sweet heart, Karen, has got him thinking if that's the life he really wants.
Vince, who has always come in second best to Tony, is still trying to find a way to be bigger and better than his old school rival.
The high school gossips, Janet and Jane, are still best of friends and are on the hunt for men, while Pearl and Dean are still hippies and out hugging the trees.
Come and follow the comedy of errors and misfortune that throw our crims into altering their plans to reach their goal.
Will Frankie 'the Fuller' Fingers and his sidekick John 'Duggs' McGee pull off the bank robbery of a life time? Will Tony leave Veronica and finally get together with Karen after all these years of wondering? Will Vince ever be better than Tony?
