Quick overview Action-packed and funny story about the rise and fall of a bank set up by school friends
€9.04

Set in a rural secondary school, this is the hilarious story of a bunch of pupils who decide to pool their savings and set up a bank to lend money to their schoolmates. They have no trouble finding customers and before long they are rolling in cash. When they are asked by a pair of supersmart techy sisters to invest in their dating app, it looks like they can't possibly lose, and soon schoolmates want to deposit money with them as well.

The whole thing starts to unravel all too soon when the app breaks down; a video project they have invested in involving performing piglets goes down the pan; and the local gangster family takes far too much interest in their doings. As the bank comes crashing down and the money starts to melt away, the lads are desperate to rescue their emergency stash, only to find that one of their group has cleverly hidden it in a not-so-clever place.
