Craig's a man with a plan. Can't afford a taxi, why not buy a car? In a tricky spot, why not blackmail your girlfriend's grandmother? And Nan's boyfriend, the used car salesman? And his half brother too? In debt? No problem. Things can always get worse.
Meet the brother, the girlfriend and her grandmother. Where's Craig? Well, there's a few people who'd like to know.
Debt. Three people, one problem, no clue.

Big glass doors and a lovely garden with a marvellous display of camellias just coming into bud. They employ a gardener of course.

EXTRACT: Craig's first big mistake was the car. Full on. Seriously. I mean, the pair of them, Craig and Met, didn't have two bucks to rub together.
