When inept, hapless Glasgow barber Barney Thomson (Robert Carlyle) accidentally kills a man, he gets help from his quirky, chain-smoking and hilarious mother (Emma Thompson) in order to get rid of the body.

The two hatch a plan to cover up the crimes but Barney, riddled with guilt, doesn't know what to do when the police start asking questions.
