Movie Info

Palookaville and The Full Monty Producer pulls triple duty as writer, producer, and director of this lighthearted ensemble comedy centering on a scheming fruit seller from Sri Lanka who dreams of inventing a new life for himself abroad. Stanley sells fruit in Colombo. He's constantly behind on his bills and continually hounded by creditors thanks to his penchant for getting involved with failed schemes, his sister is departing for the Middle East to work as a maid, and his younger brother favors petty crime over further education. It seems like everyone except for Stanley somehow manages to get by, even if it means selling gigolo services to tourists like his handsome best friend. Upon learning that Germany is set to invite international teams to the upcoming handball competition in Bavaria, Stanley recruits his friends and forms the Sri Lankan National Handball Federation as a stealthy means of obtaining German visas. Sure none of his friends have any idea how handball is actually played, but since they all plan on escaping into Germany as soon as the plane lands, who cares? As the competition draws near, Stanley and his friends spend all of their spare time gambling and raising funds through nefarious means. Only time will tell what fate awaits this Stanley and his friends in Germany, and as some begin to speculate that they'll all be arrested before boarding the plane, dissent begins to grow and tensions start to rise.
