Forced to stay in due to torrential rain, Howard tries to enjoy a good book; but his reading is interrupted by a very bored Vince, who bothers him about his favourite ‘Charlie’ books. The two zookeepers are then summoned by Bob Fossil, who orders them to take the psychotic Tony the Prawn to his brother’s Zoo for Animal Offenders. A road trip begins, but after the inevitable argument the two friends fall out: Howard insists that Vince walk the rest of the way, and drives off without him. As the storm intensifies Howard picks up a hitch-hiker for company; however, it quickly becomes apparent that the cockney Hitcher is insane, and utterly obsessed with a mysterious box he carries with him. When the Hitcher forces him to look into the box, Howard falls inside and finds himself in a surreal world inhabited by the strange ‘People of the Box’…
