Plum & JaggersLarge Print - 2000
Sam McWilliams is the oldest of the 4 McWilliams children, and the only one who remembers how the first 2 cars of the Espresso from Milan to Rome exploded, killing his parents. Haunted by their senseless death, Sam is driven to protect his siblings - even if it means breaking the law. When he winds up in a juvenile home, he begins to write skits centering on the broken families of the boys at the home. Sam's talents culminate in a series of darkly comic sketches. With these sketches as their dramatic fuel, the McWilliams children form the comedy troupe Plum & Jaggers. The McWilliamses, hailed by critics and fans, rise from underground venues to a late-night television slot with their blackly humorous take on family life and the irony of chance. But the controversy they unwittingly create exposes them to dangers - internal and external - that even Sam may not be able to quell.
