A riotous comedy – full of gleefully farcical characters – that centres around the love, lies and finances of two brothers and their family-owned medical centre.
Inspired by A Fish Called Wanda, and a hilarious spoof of American medical TV dramas like ER, this riotous farce centres on two brothers running a family-owned medical clinic. Older brother John is gentle, timid and desperately in love with Priscilla. But when younger brother and ladies man Michael sets eyes on her, family relations get more than stretched. To make matters worse, the clinic is losing money and likely to be taken over by a pharmaceutical giant, forcing Michael to try out some new techniques in plastic surgery to make money quickly. Add a conniving, sexy nurse called Samantha Bitch, bumbling hit men and alternative forms of anaesthesia, and you have a recipe for more than madness. Actor-director Artus de Penguern pushes everything to the extreme, playfully mixing screwball comedy, silent slapstick and deadpan farce.
