Summary
A dark comedy that tells the story of Barney, an awkward barber who inadvertently stumbles into serial murder with both absurd and macabre consequences. Barber Barney Thomson has a problem -- his banter is so tedious that he's become a liability at his Glasgow workplace. As events take a grisly turn and customers and staff start to disappear, Barney attracts the attention of local Detective Inspector Holdall. With blood on his hands, he turns to his bingo-loving mother to get him out of trouble
