Witness Mike Fahey, police constable, as he penetrates the pub world of petrol-heads, perverts and pit-bulls'and loses the plot. Award winning actor (& co-writer) Stephen Papps takes us into the Queens Arms, Panmure, Auckland, where it's all goin' down: sex, drugs, violence,
Mike goes under, Cheryl goes down, Anal is fingered, and Satan the rottweiler gets CPR! One man's struggle with betrayal and loss of identity that is also an hilarious, affectionate satire on the New Zealand public bar.
