Boycie is on the run from infamous London villains the Driscoll Brothers ("even the Kray twins told them to lighten up"). To help ensure he lives to an old age he ups sticks with his reluctant wife Marlene and more-than-reluctant skateboarding son Tyler to a secluded farm house in Shropshire where he hopes they'll be safe. Unsurprisingly the Boyce family don't immediately fit into their new surroundings.
