This comedy-drama/buddy film showcases a raw slice of Barbadian community life. Romie, an aspiring mechanic and ladies’ man, and his brutally honest best friend Pack, invest their entire salaries in a down-payment on a garage to establish a successful mechanic's shop and get away from their boring jobs as security guards, their loving yet eccentric and demanding families, and poor standard of living in their village. The simple task of making the down-payment to the garage owner at a village party that night is hilariously complicated by Romie's love-life, and Pack's love for cannabis. The complications and laughs multiply as the best friends go to extremes to avoid violent drug men, a charity collector, crazy ex-girlfriends and other wacky villagers!

This “unapologetically Bajan” film was created by young script-writer Shakirah Bourne and the sequel, “Payday 2” is expected soon.
