Freddy, a young aspiring music producer and DJ gets called into a meeting with an infamous local promoter, “Old Mate”. A brash, loud and yet strangely charismatic human. He gives Freddy the biggest gig of his life with one enormous caveat: he must smuggle a big bag of drugs into the festival.

Stressed out, Freddy gets an idea; he’ll bury the drugs and dig them up once the festival has started. Amazingly his plan works. Old Mate is pleased but has some unfortunate news, Freddy has been bumped from the lineup. In a rush of anger, Freddy runs his mouth, and Old Mate grabs him, threatening him and his career. After the altercation, Freddy ends up with old Mate’s prized ninja star coke spoon, which he launches at old mate, grabs the bag and runs.
