Further details

Moz's day gets off to a bad start when he is woken up by the phone.

It gets worse when his girlfriend Nicki complains about the state of their flat and when she discovers a rat in the flat, she punches Moz on the nose and decides to move out.

None of this is good for business! And it's a busy morning with a steady stream of customers: Colin - just out on probation; Jenny - the childminder from hell; and later Brian with his latest boyfriend Matthew.

Things start to look up when PC, Moz's supplier, gets hold of some really good gear.

And when Moz's next clients are attractive students, Asia and China, Moz can't believe his luck!

He takes a real shine to China and even breaks his number one rule - no cash, no hash!

But just when things look to be on the up, a new customer called Paul comes round with an unexpected surprise for Moz!
