Two strangers teetering on the edge of violence dubbed "The Rosencrantz and Gildenstern of the Streets" at London's Royal Court Theatre meet and figure out, using a borrowed library book, how to build bombs out of air conditioning parts.

The glow from the neighboring apartment gets unusually bright, an irate mother threatens them, and the damaged pictures the bomb victims come alive. And even worse, Earl's gin sours as the bombers' world explodes in a surreal escape from the darkness of their crime spree into the light.
