Storyline

When introverted dog-lover Tina meets would-be author Chris, she dares to dream of an escape from her sheltered life and suffocating mother. In spite of mum's protests, the pair packs an RV with all the comforts of home and sets out on the open road. With a meticulously plotted journey to such destinations as the Keswick Pencil Museum and the Ribblehead Viaduct, Chris and Tina are ready for an endearingly humble adventure. But it doesn't take long for their dream of a quiet romantic getaway to fade, as rude tourists, noisy teens and crowded campsites conspire to shatter their peace.

When Chris backs their caravan over a litterbug who carelessly tosses an ice cream wrapper on the ground, the demure Tina seems surprisingly unfazed by her partner's barely concealed bloodlust. As Chris becomes increasingly emboldened in his mission to rid the world of offensive people, something is unleashed within Tina, and her wide-eyed enthusiasm for seeing the countryside transforms into a hilariously coldblooded fascination with murder. Wheatley's charmingly frumpy Bonnie and Clyde become progressively more unhinged as their erotic odyssey turns into a killing spree, testing both their relationship and their faith in each other.
