Following a car crash Ron and Olga are bizarrely transported from their comfy world into an uncertain one -- from the safety of their living-room in England, into an alien world in North Africa and across Europe. Without money or documents and still in their pyjamas, they will need to put aside their mutual animosity and find a way back.
Olga and her son Ron, both living in the portside town of Tilbury, manage to accidently exile themselves from their own country over an argument about cheese. As if being stranded in Morocco without documents or money wasn’t enough, they have to find a way to immigrate back home.
With a relationship that is strained at the best of times, mother and son have to survive each other as well as a journey across the Mediterranean and European continent. As their absurd adventure unfolds, the two come face-to-face with their own insecurities. While the manipulative but uninhibited mother hides her vulnerabilities behind her crass and carefree manners, her juvenile son struggles between wanting his own independence and needing his mother’s support.
