Robbie Coltrane plays a rehabilitated gambler who is tested beyond all limits when a head stored in the university turns out to accurately predict race horse winners. Robbie Coltrane finds he must hold off a representative from the university of Australia, who has come to reclaim the head and take it back to Australia, and the mob in order to raise money for his daughters tuition.
