Stanley is an unemployed resident of the shabby English seaside boarding house run by middle-aged couple Meg and Petey. One day, two mysterious gentlemen, Goldberg and McCann, arrive to stay in the boarding house. They seem to be looking for Stanley. Why? What do they want from him? As the day of their arrival happens to be Stanley’s birthday, the gentlemen insist on having a birthday party for him that same evening, but events take a very dark turn. Stanley’s birthday celebration becomes a nightmare. With Larry Rusinsky, Fran Potasnik, Alexander Trice, Haley Cook, Adrian Diffey and Alan Madlane.
