If I kill you, will you leave me alone?

When Colin Frampton’s wife is accidentally squashed by a falling statue during a romantic weekend in Prague, he decides that life isn’t worth living without her. Using only the remaining balance on his credit card, Colin hires a hen-pecked Czech odd-job man, Pavel, to kill him. An unlikely friendship develops as Pavel’s plans to kill Colin spin out of control, dragging in Pavel’s gold-digging wife, her secret lover, and top Prague gangster, Karlovic. The body count rises but Colin remains irritatingly alive. The misfit pair soon discover that death does not come as easily as they thought. An hilarious black commedy-Pythonesque.
