This is the premise of a totally plausible conspiracy theory that takes us to swinging sixties London, where a stubborn CIA agent (Ron Perlman) will never find Kubrick but instead is forced to team up with a lousy manager (Rupert Grint) of a seedy rock band to develop the biggest con of all time.

It’s just another day on the job for a band of war zone rescue workers as they defy death and confront war’s absurdities. The setting is 1995, “somewhere in the Balkans.” Over the course of 24 hours, Mambrú (Benicio del Toro), leads his team of humanitarians—including a hard-bitten, wisecracking veteran (Tim Robbins) and a new recruit (Melanie Thierry)—as they deal with a most unexpected crisis, layers of bureaucratic red tape, and the reappearance of Mambrú’s old flame. Through it all, the group handles the less-than-glamorous realities of life in a combat zone the only way they know how: with selfless bravery and a healthy dose of irreverent humor.
