Brendan and his friends are nightclub promoters, living a party lifestyle and hobnobbing with celebrities. To sweeten his income, Brendan and his friends accept an offer to go to Brazil, pick up a package and take it to Hungary. They are expected to tape cocaine to their bodies and walk through airport security. But their fears are realized: They are sent to the local police station, strip-searched, and locked in a service elevator for two days because of space limitations.
