From the director of The Full Monty comes this delightfully entertaining comedy with a musical twist. Small-time crook Jimmy Hands (James Nesbitt) fears his luck may have run out. After a botched bank robbery, Jimmy finds himself in prison with a 12-year sentence. But Jimmy's fortunes turn when the warden (Christopher Plummer), an amateur playwright, asks Jimmy to recruit prisoners to act in a musical he's written and plans to stage in the prison's chapel. Realising that the chapel offers the perfect escape route, Jimmy throws himself into the job. But Jimmy's plan is threatened when the warden casts Jimmy opposite the prison's beautiful psychologist (Olivia Williams). Now Jimmy and the cast run the risk of being caught in both the stage's spotlight and the prison's searchlights!
