Olga and her son Ron, both living in the port-side town of Tilbury, England, manage to accidentally exile themselves to Morocco after crashing into a shipping container whilst arguing about cheese. As if being stranded in Morocco without documents or money wasn't enough, they have to find a way to get back home.

With a relationship that is strained at the best of times, mother and son have to survive with each other as well as a journey across both the Mediterranean and the European continent. As their absurd adventure unfolds, the two come face-to-face with their own insecurities. While the manipulative but uninhibited mother hides her vulnerabilities behind her crass and carefree manners, her juvenile son struggles between wanting his own independence and needing his mother's support.

Will the two make it back and will their relationship survive?
