Surrounded by the Police, the SAS, and the Mobster's crew, the young man must find a way out of his precarious predicament with the help of his oddball captives.

He's doing some charity work.

comfortable couch,

lovely. You'd sink into it up

We'll leave it here,

give you a good price.

Excuse me?
