Shoot The Crow

A comical story of a man near retirement joining with his younger work colleague to rob a pallet of tiles from their employer gets complicated when their two co-workers Petsey and Socrates decide to do the same thing. Their clumsy attempt at such a miniscule crime is hilarious especially when it poses many problems.
