Little Maximo Rooney (Arvy Viduya), bullied and ridiculed at school, arrives home one day to find two strangers hiding in his apartment. Small-time thief Nico (Roco) and his cousin Lloyd are on the run after a bungled jewellery heist, with two corrupt detectives in hot pursuit. Although separated by age and background, Nico and Maximo become firm friends. But with a handful of black market diamonds at stake and cousin Lloyd becoming increasingly twitchy, all bets are off.
Director Nathan Adolfson’s sharp script provides plenty of laugh-out-loud moments in an otherwise dark tale of despicable bullies and desperate pipe dreams.
