An un-romantic comedy in "French Wave" style, set in modern East London. Philip and Casper, two flatmates in London's east end, flip a coin about most decisions in their lives, but mostly about women. Though Philip is the one to win the tosses, Casper is the one with the ladies. Philip silently blames Casper for his own aimless life, always being broke and never being able to pay the rent. But when beautiful French girl Marie enters their life, things drastically change and Philip is not prepared to let Casper play his cheap tricks this time. Marie was meant to rent Casper's room while he went to Spain for a week, but Casper misses his flight and soon the two friends stand head to head over love. Just before things get really serious Marie introduces the idea that they should rob the rich family for whom she works as an au-pair and run away with the money. All three of them, together. But in the house lures unpredictable danger...
