We meet Chin, a party-loving Chinese Yuppie, as he enlists a 12-year-old karate enthusiast to get cheap labour under the guise of teaching him to be a warrior.

Banksy's French pen pal, Le Rat, comes to stay, resulting in a brush with the law, and we meet Curtis: a do-gooding '80s rapper who finds himself a bit out of place on the London grime scene.
