Lewis Capaldi Goes Tropical

A surreal chaotic comedy following a misfit family from Glasgow’s fringes as they prepare a party to say farewell to a beloved black-market animal.

Red Erin and Wee Rob have been invited to a gaff party for the send-off of Uncle Jack’s illegal pet okapi, which has been bought by none other than pop sensation Lewis Capaldi.

But Uncle Jack has grown quite fond of this okapi and is reluctant to say goodbye. Whilst Wee Rob, inspired by the potential of meeting a pop star, admits to Red Erin that he’s been harbouring dreams of a better life away from their everyday romance.
