Liam and Mickey start a dog-walking business, but find that dogs are not easy to look after when you're busy trying to impress girls with Kung-Fu fighting, in this Manchester-set comedy-drama by Ben Crompton.

Liam is 24 years old, unemployed and still living at home with his mum, Sheila, and dad Alan - a postman on dubious sick leave due to eczema on his shoulder. Liam's best mate Mickey has set up as a "professional" dog walker to earn some cash.

But there's nothing remotely professional about Mickey. Their first customer, Toots, belongs to local gangster Wonky Jackson's grandmother. Mickey feeds Toots chocolate; takes him to play snooker; and while demonstrating Kung-Fu moves to Hayley, a girl he has a major crush on, he manages to kick Toots off a bridge onto four lanes of traffic.

Mickey and Liam then have some quick thinking to do to save themselves from Wonky Jackson.
