Bimbo, an unemployed baker, and his best friend Larry are two regular guys on the dole who pass the time at the local pub. While Bimbo doesn't have any immediate job prospects, he's suddenly blessed with an epiphany -- he buys a beat-up old van so he can sell burgers and fish & chips from it. Larry is made a partner and they christen the van Bimbo's Burgers. Despite hair-raising encounters with hostile customers and supercilious officials, Bimbo's Burgers is an instant success. But as business prospers, Larry and Bimbo's friendship falters. Their uneasy proprietor relationship produces only mutual resentment. Unfortunately, it threatens to turn violent.
