Synopsis

A destination wedding in Australia’s Blue Mountains goes horribly wrong when Luke gets drunk and falls off a cliff. He lands in a lake and miraculously survives… Only for a huge rock to land on his head and crush him stone dead. Our boys, David (Xavier Samuel), Tom (Kris Marshall) and Graham (Kevin Bishop) suddenly find themselves transporting his corpse back to London, where his grieving Aunt is already planning the funeral. Riddled with grief, guilt and their usual self-obsession, the lads are under constant threat from Luke’s Mad Cousin Henry (Ryan Corr). If they fail to deliver Luke’s body in time for the funeral there will be both emotional and physical consequences to pay.

The local ranger (Sacha Horler) helps them retrieve the corpse and David’s father-in-law manages to organize a private jet to fly them back to London. However, Graham insists on sitting in the cockpit, whilst Tom tries to have grief-sex in the toilets with a flight attendant (Pip Edwards). Both episodes ultimately force the pilot (Jeremy Sims) into a hard landing in the middle of Australia.

From a crocodile infested swamp, our boys attempt to transport their friend through the treacherous bush, facing all manner of challenges and opportunities…

Filming in West Australia

“One of the things that attracted me to the movie was the fact that it’s a road movie essentially…”

“…and it goes through a lot of landscapes. The first film, the nature of it, was the wedding and party in the one spot. But this one, we were actually out on the road and out in the country so, it became a matter of incorporating them as part of the landscapes and making a real journey out of it. And the landscapes vary so much. .”
