Times are hard again. Bankrupt and back to selling dodgy Slovakian log-effect gas fires, Dels even driving for Boycie. Trotters Independent Trading Co. needs capital pronto. So when the brothers decide to travel to Normandy to represent Uncle Albert at a war reunion, a "nothing to declare" visit to a wine warehouse with Denzils new van seems a cushty option. But chamboussiz nouvelle! France is like a foreign country: the reunion town is full of Albert-a-likes ("more Captain Birdseyes Banjo than Captain Morellis Mandarin"), they bring back an illegal immigrant and somehow become the internationally-hunted "Gary Gang".
