A Bit On The Side is a wry story that tries to find some sense in one man's obsession with drills. Tony is fixated with drills of all shapes and sizes. As we follow him on his search for drills to add to his ever-increasing collection, we slowly unwrap the logic behind this strange and amusing obsession.
