They're not exactly seasoned adventurers. Dean, Duncan and DJ Beatroot would rather use their map to smoke hash in than find their way safely to their destination. As the three biggest losers at their school, they have to make a testing hike across the Scottish Highlands, accompanied by nerd Ian.

A recipe for disaster: and that's just the start. The four teenagers have to run for their lives. As the air is thick with bullets, the motley group stagger from one unlikely plot twist to the next. Hallucinogenic rabbit droppings and paranoid police officers without a clue: in this crazy comedy, the chaos is complete.

Boyz in the Wood kicks off in top gear, giving an explosive account of the struggle between young and old. Who will come out on top?
