“Welcome to The Debt Duck – the UK’s premier payday loans company”

Tom and Clem are deep in debt. Alan, Tom’s boss, owes big bucks. Meryl, Alan’s manager, is mortgaged to the hilt. When The Debt Duck’s owner liquidates the company and retires to his luxury chalet, Tom, Clem, Alan and Meryl each decide to crack the safe, steal some cash and put an end to their financial woes.

But will they break the cycle of debt? Or is this just another terrible trap? From the author of An Incident at the Border, comes a biting new comedy about the financial perils of a capitalist world.

Written by Kieran Lynn and directed by Dan Ayling
