Take a couple of burnt-out ravers, a drug dealer and his damaged girlfriend, a petty criminal breaking parole, an aging biker and a hopeless dole queue dreamer, stick them in the back of a Bedford van heading east across Europe for two weeks, and see what happens. It's a tale of working-class bohemia, a road trip from Yorkshire and Brighton to Prague, Poland and beyond- a search for absinthe, adventure and an elusive ideal of freedom on the fringes of the consumer-capitalist rat race.
