Fergus and Wesley get involved in a fight with an IRA terrorist shortly before his arrest. Fearing retribution, they flee to Australia, where they work illegally. When Fergus wins a TV show prize holiday to Queensland, he misses a police raid on illegal immigrants. But Wesley is forced to run again, and soon joins his friend on the coast. But they have chosen the wrong vacation spot: the IRA man is there, having been released into a witness protection program, and soon the men are on the run from both sides of the law.
