This comedy finds Dylan and Jez, two over- qualified, underemployed orphans in their mid-twenties, looking to exploit the "rich get richer" syndrome. Set in Great Britain, Dylan is a fast talking Yankee with a knack for saying just the right thing at just the right time. Jez, however, is a tongue-tied techno-wizard with an extremely bad haircut.

Together, Dylan and Jez use every coupon they can lay their hands on, enter every free prize drawing they stumble upon, and scam anyone who can afford to lose a few shillings. Then, along comes Georgie with her own mission. She needs money -- a lot of money -- but for reasons far more altruistic than Dylan and Jez, who just might provide her with the pot of gold she's looking for.
