Woody, Quinn, Baxter and Rick have been friends since sixth form. The fifth member of their gang is Alvo, a risk-taking opportunist who, having made his fortune in property, leads a luxurious lifestyle in Majorca. Now in their 40s, they've all taken different paths in life with varying degrees of success. When Alvo flies them to his extravagant villa to celebrate his early retirement, they enjoy a trip down memory lane. However, all does not go to plan and they find themselves entangled in a web of deception and murder involving beautiful police women, large yachts, Speedos and a rather short assassin in a Tony Blair mask...

It seems too good to be true - haven't Woody, Quinn, Baxter and Rick learned their lesson by now?

Picking up where they left off is not an option and, depressed and directionless, the boys feel out of place, no more so than at Baxter’s daughter’s wedding – where a scuffle breaks out. Rick, however, has a solution that could pocket them two million euros apiece and turn everything around. Of course, nothing ever goes according to plan for these four.
