SYNOPSIS

Tom Kerwood and his wife Linda are hoping to adopt a baby and buy their own home. This would be the happiest time of their lives… if not for Tom’s ne’er-do-well (but well-meaning) brothers: lovable rogue Dick and thick-headed genius Harry. The bumbling brothers arrive to help make a good impression on Mrs. Potter, the adoption agency supervisor who is coming to inspect the prospective parents’ home. Unfortunately, Dick shows up with a van full of smuggled goods from France, while Harry has a bag of cadaver body parts he stole from the morgue… and it’s all part of a “genius plan” to make Tom and Linda’s dreams come true. Something else got smuggled in from France: Andreas and his granddaughter Katerina, a pair of Albanian illegal immigrants who stowed away in the van and don’t speak a word of English. Things get even more complicated for the Kerwoods when Constable Downs arrives to investigate the sudden commotion. Adding to the chaos, Boris a menacing East European mobster, shows up to threaten the Albanians. Is there still hope for a happy family? This frenzied farce is an absurd delight!
