Dick and Harry Bridges are newly married and Dick has organised their honeymoon getaway
as a do-it-yourself cruise on a West Midland backwater canal.
Harry, a girl of means, is crestfallen at the cheapness of Dick’s honeymoon plans
but soon starts to like the carefree world of canal life when Dick employs Tom, a
local pikey, to help steer them through the gates and locks.
Meanwhile, Dick has employed Sunshine an incompetent hit-man to kill his wife so
he can collect on her life insurance, but the presence of Tom complicates Sunshine’s
attempts to do away with her.
