When an inept scout leader attempts to turn her scouts into Superscouts she accidentally leads them into a private safari park. Faced with mortal danger, they must prove themselves against armed girl scouts, foolish park rangers and mad criminals. Oh, and lions.
Directed by Alec Toller and written by Bryony Byrne, this action comedy was made in the do-it-yourself tradition of good scouting. Shot in rural Lincolnshire over four weeks with six young, local actors, it was completed on a shoestring budget and with the help of a wonderful community.

Clashing egos, tested friendships and a series of disastrous misunderstandings combine to create the most offensive, shocking and accidental piece of theater ever to debut in front of a live audience.
Play premiered as the opening night film at the 2013 Wiliamsburg International Film Festival in New York City. It won Best Screenplay at the festival, as well as the 2013 NYC Bootleg Film Festival and the 2013 LA Broad Humor Festival. It also won Best Actress at Williamsburg.
Play has also screened at the London International Film Festival, the NYC Independent Film Festival, and the Jakarta International Film Festival
