It explores what happens when two middle-aged guys flee the worlds they have always known and wind up on the same tropical island, one as the owner of a hotel, the other as his servant? And what if they looked at a role-reversal play as part of the hotel’s entertainment? That is the thread that weaves the storyline of this fast-paced comedy together and gives audiences a non-stop romp through cliché, humour, drama, societal roles and most interestingly, self image.
