Andy is a dissolute out-of work musician who forges an unlikely alliance with his nephew Errol after being morally blackmailed into looking after him by his chaotic sister Sam.

Not a natural with either kids or responsibility, he tries to keep his new charge out of trouble while being knee-deep in it himself.
