Roy hasn't had a physical relationship with a woman for as long as he can remember. Egged on by Tom, he visits Katia, a Belorussian prostitute in Soho. Emboldened by his friend's actions, Tom decides to start seeing Katia as well.

Meanwhile, Amber is attending a church group as she has taken a fancy to Phil, the local vicar. She persuades her dad, Tom, to come with her to a meeting and, despite his natural cynicism, he begins to take an interest in Christianity. His new-found religious beliefs are naturally at odds with his new-found interest in Katia.

Tom and Roy's friendship is threatened when Roy discovers that Tom is also seeing Katia. Can they both turn their back on the most affordably priced love of their lives, or will their desire for Katia drive them apart?
