1. One of the best Irish films in years. 2. Hilarious take on an Irish epic adventure. 3. The People's Republic on camera.
Conor and Jock, two dopey looking innercity teenagers from Cork, are best friends who dress the same, with dodgy haircuts and bum-fluff moustaches. Jock is a local legend — the uncatchable bike thief — much to the annoyance of bike cop Healy who has vowed to catch him. Jock hears about a failed drug trafficking attempt in West Cork where 61 bales of cocaine, each of which is worth €7 million, end up in the sea. Jock and Conor steal two bikes and travel on a 160km road trip hoping to find a bale with Healy in hot pursuit
