Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Eddie and his buddy Mick have entered their young adulthood without any plans, skills, or regular employment. They live in urban Australia, subsisting on the fringes of everything, looking for a bit of action and a bit of a good time. They fall into a job working for a mysterious, monied and very racist man, painting obnoxious slogans on factory walls. Soon, their employer lets them know that they could join the racist and a crew of mercenaries on a military adventure in Africa. However, as newbies, they must raise some money to prove their sincerity. In fact, Eddie, who doesn't look rough enough, is nearly left out in the cold altogether but gets considered for the job of cook. Now the two lads have a purpose in life. No, they're not committed to "the cause," but it looks like some real action for a change. However, raising the money for their entry fee gets them into far more trouble than they bargained for.
