Three misfits devise a plot to photograph and blackmail adulterous couples. Fired by the promise of revenge against the Bramwells (the wealthy property developers who stole his family’s land) and embarrassed by his gone-mad father building an enormous tower in the front yard, Cedric is ready for action. When they realise they can’t afford to buy a camera for the job, Cedric ingeniously suggests that all they need is a flash bulb, to give the impression a photo has been taken. When they inadvertently “photograph” Maybelle, the object of Cedric’s teenage fantasies, Cedric’s anxiety levels soar and the plot starts to unravel. He jumps at shadows as he begins to fear the dark side of his new friends. When the trio con the wrong man, Cedric - tortured by lust, roped into blackmail and possibly an accessory to murder - is in a predicament.
