Apetown

Ape Town

Lars thinks he’s found a foolproof, virtually legal plan to earn money from pool clubs without having to do much work. But what starts out as a simple plan soon puts him on the wrong side of Costas, a Greek club owner whose wrong side you just don’t want to be on, and a man who happens to have a special plan of his own. Hampered by a single digit bank balance, an unpronounceable name and a habitually dysfunctional and distant family, Lars must now rely on his friends. Frankie (an ex-SADF soldier with homicidal tendencies), Croccy (a dope-addled Australian who hasn’t taken his shoes of since he was eighteen) and Marvin (an itinerant barman who rarely gets out of bed) to help him out of the mess.
