Those fond of the music of Chris Rea will find this movie very satisfying as his music is the backbone of this film. Rea himself does not appear in it, though he wrote the screenplay. The story concerns Jo, a young Italian immigrant to England who steals an ice-cream recipe from his father, runs away from home, makes a best-selling perfume from the recipe, becomes rich and powerful, and then realizes that his family was more important than everything else. One of the film's notable highlights is auto racing footage from the 1960s. Singer Shirley Bassey appears as herself.
