Richie Richard and Eddie Hitler are the two most idiotic, depraved men in London.

Living together in a disgusting, run down flat in Hammersmith, the pair are simultaneously best friends and worst enemies, regularly arguing, taking great joy in the pain of the other, and engaging in horrendous physical violence.

Unemployed, incompetent, socially retarded and - in Richie's case - virginal, the pair engage in a never-ending cycle of clashes with each other, locals, fate, nature, time...
