A sharp 13-year-old boy and his incompetent older brother are paid $200 to look after a box of candy. This seems like a pretty easy job, but soon a number of nasty characters pursue the boys, stopping at nothing to get this box. Why? The boys don't understand, and set out to discover the secret of their box of candy, while staying out of reach of the thugs pursuing them. This witty reworking of the private eye genre, set in contemporary London, features a thoroughly entertaining blend of tension and laughter for both children and adults.
