Spin the bottle tells the story of rats…
When Rats (Michael McElhatton) is released from prison yet again, his return to his mothers house gets off to a bad start. The money painstakingly saved to send his Aunt to Lourdes (for a miracle cure for her terminal obesity), is stolen.
Rats embarks on a series of hapless attempts to replace the stolen money before its too late to save his stricken Aunty. The penny eventually drops and when he decides he must use his only weapon – his musical genius…
Enter his old band Spermdotcom, Tom now gainfully employed in an animal sanctuary (Peter McDonald) and Brainer, now playing keyboard for a heavy metal band (Donal O’Kelly).
