Count Arthur Strong is a faded star from the golden days of variety. He was never as famous as he thinks he was…or still thinks he is.

Now, his days are all about opportunity – with another great entertainment triumph only a phone call away. But until the call comes, Arthur spends his days making the most of any other type of opportunity that comes along. This could be a free lunch or selling a dodgy foot-spa he doesn’t want. He lives a ‘hand to mouth’ existence creating chaos and confusion wherever he goes especially for his new friend, writer Michael (Rory Kinnear – Skyfall, Quantum of Solace), who is blissfully unaware of any of it.
