Once upon a time in the Midlands
Originally produced:
After his girlfriend turns down a marriage proposal by her decent-but-dull boyfriend, small-time crook, Jimmy, drifts back into town to win back his old flame and pull off one final crime. Will she follow her head or her heart - and can her new beau handle the stiff competition? This smooth operator has more than met his match in a motley crew of oddball outcasts, as rekindled passions and old secrets up the ante in an uproarious love triangle.
