A Song for Europe
Pete, 1960s failed pop musician and 1990s loser, returns home late one night after a drunken karaoke session at his local. When he decorates the carpet, it's the last straw for Tina, his long-suffering wife of over thirty years. She packs her bags and leaves. But, just when it seems that Pete has hit rock bottom, an Internet cock-up changes his life forever. The boozy assistant caretaker from Liverpool is handed another chance of success when the fledgling democracy of Slavonicia hatches a sensational plan to save the nation from economic meltdown. The amiable but naive Pete finds himself recruited to boost the impoverished country's chances of boarding the E.C. gravy train. His task: to ensure that Slavonicia wins the Eurovision Song Contest. Others, however, have a different agenda ... Sex, drugs, rock and roll, high-level international political intrigue and low farce: watching the Eurovision will never be the same again!
