Thomas, Jack and Wayne are best mates. At night they're the Stickmen, who tour the Wellington pub scene playing pool with ever-increasing stakes. These peak when they enter a tournament run by vicious crime boss ‘Daddy'. Can they pocket the money and win the girls? Rothwell's first feature was a Kiwi take on the UK urban underbelly genre (Lock, Stock etc). "Smart, stylish and effortlessly entertaining" (Dominion Post) the film was a hit with the young male demographic and won several 2001 NZ Film and TV Awards (including best director, script, and actor).
