Jack Stapleton is one of the Bellers, a bunch of Cockney super-heroes who run secret missions for the British government but prefer to spend their time in virtual reality naughtiness or gambling away their grant. Jack's gizmo-inventing bachelor lifestyle is rocked when he falls for Sandra the local barmaid, then ripped apart after she's kidnapped by the deadly Bloodjacker who's supposed to be a myth. With the ragged remains of the Bellers getting pummelled by the Bloodjacker's super-powered forces, it's all down to Jack. But in order to beat the Bloodjacker he must put his total trust in the woman he betrayed.
