Synopsis

Dublin, November 1989. Bimbo Reeves, a baker, has lost his job. Refusing to accept a future of afternoon TV and pubs, he buys a dilapidated van with his redundancy money. As 1990 gets underway and World Cup fever hits Dublin, Bimbo and his best friend and partner Larry, enter the fast food business. Bimbo's wife Maggie is also involved. The enterprise starts brilliantly, the men are happy and the friendship is solid. But, as the business prospers, things gradually turn sour. The lack of working space, Larry's resentment of Maggie and his self-pity undermines the business and the friendship. The van has come between them and both their hearts are breaking. An unhappy Bimbo decides to make the supreme sacrifice...
