Stressed-out Gary is desperate to quit his dodgy job and is on edge when he attacks a late-night intruder - only to discover it's his neighbour Dipi...
Gary Canning thinks he’s going to quit his dodgy job as a delivery man for some shady crooks. But his ex-con mate Kev McNally has other ideas…
When Gary is contacted about another dodgy delivery job, he reminds Kev he has carried out his one-last task and is now out of the game.
But Kev warns Gary he is messing with the wrong people by quitting, so he had better watch his back!
So when Gary goes to the coffee hut he runs during the New Year’s Eve celebrations, he’s alarmed to find some of the stolen goods planted there, and realises the crooks are trying to pin the whole scam on him and if caught by the police, Gary could be sent back to prison.
Gary is increasingly on edge and when he later sees Kev at The Waterhole during the New Year’s party, he senses danger. But when Gary attempts to follow Kev and then pounces on a shadowy figure by the coffee hut, he’s shocked to see he has attacked his own neighbour, Dipi Rebecchi…
