Francis Boyd Drake is having a bad day. Reduced to working for a telephone sales company, his
sadistic boss, Phil Bishop, fires him and then frames him for massive fraud. His wife, sick to death
of the endless series of dilapidated homes they rent, leaves him. As his vicious landlady and her son
burn out the tenants next door, Drake hands over a week's rent. The landlady takes the money--and
swiftly evicts him--only to end up dead, along with her son, on Drake's livingroom floor. It is also
on this day that 20-year-old Ziggy enters his crumbling world, claiming to be his daughter. She also
brings a little chaos of her own in the shape of her two lunatic travelling companions, Breakfast and
Panda, who rob banks and pull out people's fingernails.
Drake denies he is Ziggy's father, but she refuses to believe him... or leave him. Thrown together,
they embark on a darkly comic adventure. With luck, the trip might lead them towards redemption and
the true meaning of love and family.
