Billy, Neil and Dave run a failing corporate video production business in a small town in Essex on the River Thames. One soul-destroying video job after another eventually causes Billy to crack and he vows to give up on the business altogether. But then he experiences a 'eureka!' moment and makes a potentially life-changing decision, a decision he's convinced will pull them out of financial strife: to make a crime thriller - or geezer - movie!

With agonising incompetency and innocently lacking in political correctness, the boys embark on production of their very first movie. But in the face of adversity - and with all the benefits of naivety - Billy's sights become firmly set to win the highest movie accolade of them all... to win 'Best Geezer' at THE GEEZERS!

The question is, will their film - produced with loose change, second-rate equipment and non-professional actors - be good enough? Will it stand up to the tradition of quality geezer movies made by the big boys in London? Will they get a stab at the top prize?

Throughout this eye-popping and agonising process, the boys are forced to reassess their lives, goals and relationships.
