Looking for a way out of their humdrum lives in the outskirts of Glasgow, straight-laced Sean, fresh from dropping out of uni, and the gallus Daro, overflowing with charisma and business ‘acumen’, reckon they can be the dream team of frozen treats.
Following in the footsteps of their business heroes Bannatyne and Branson, full of tall tales and cunning plans, and fuelled by Irn Bru and baccy, the two go from the heady heights of summer to the perilous cold of winter in their slightly clapped-out van of destiny. But surely it’s always ice cream season?
However, they quickly discover that conquering the ice cream business will be anything but a sundae stroll…
As the bills, admin and brain freezes build up, Sean and Daro’s relationship is put to the test and their friendship gets frosty. Will they stay solid, or will they melt under the pressure?
