Spivs is the story of Jack Pike (Ken Stott) who uses his glittering personality to get exactly what he wants when he wants it. If this means using his charm to pull off small thefts with his buddy Steve (Nick Morgan) and Goat (Dominic Monaghan), he will do it. The three comrades accidentally get into the underground world of immigrant trading when sexy Jenny (Kate Ashfield) cons them into holding onto two Albanian children. If Jack, Steve, and Goat thought they were in trouble with all their little misdeeds, these children showed them what real trouble is all about. Before too long, their stories about the children like who they are and where they come from get mixed up and they are caught in a real pickle. Everyone, ranging from the con men to the immigrants who are being traded, fears for their lives and the only way to win this game is to just try to keep breathing.
