Barney Thomson is an awkward barber who inadvertently stumbles into serial murder, with both absurd and macabre consequences. When a series of accidental events causes Barney’s dark fantasies to become reality, his uninteresting life suddenly gets very complicated, as he enters the grotesque and comically absurd world of the serial killer.

Complicating matters further, Barney’s mother Cemolina has a secret of her own, causing a bloody and comedic chain of events. While Barney clumsily tries to cover his and his mother’s tracks, the police inspector Holdall fights his own battles within his inept homicide department as he tries to solve the crime of the century. A black comedy of errors unfolds as the police try to capture the murderer at large.
