Movie propaganda

Headrush is a crazy caper comedy about two young stoners Charlie (Wuzza Conlan) and T-Bag (Gavin Kelty), orbiting society in a haze of dope and dreams. But when Charlie gets dumped by his girlfriend Vicky (Laura Pyper), and kicked off the dole, he crashes to earth desperate to get her back.

T-Bag hears on the grapevine that a notorious Underworld Criminal, The Uncle (Steven Berkoff), is looking for new mules, so Charlie conceives an elaborate scam to smuggle a consignment of Cocaine back from Amsterdam. When The Uncle hires them, it sends them on a surreal adventure into a world they know nothing about, but must survive.

As their scam unfolds, a series of comic coincidences begin to unravel their carefully laid plans resulting in both the gangsters and the cops hot on their trail. The proverbial fish out of water, Charlie and T-Bag find themselves sinking deeper and deeper into trouble.

Headrush is a finely smoked blend of action and adventure, comedy and drama, rolled together with the best of cinematic ingredients, providing a truly memorable movie high!
