Neil Bennett, a wealthy Briton, is enjoying a carefree holiday with his family at a luxury resort in Acapulco, Mexico. An unexpected phone call disrupts the sunny idyll. There has been a death in the family and the party must return to London immediately. On the way to the airport, Neil claims he has forgotten his passport in the hotel. He says he will take a later flight, but instead of travelling to London, Neil takes refuge in a budget hotel, drinks beer on the beach, meets a local beauty and makes up reasons to postpone his return home. What is Neil up to? How long can he linger abroad while his family grieves and contends with legal matters?
