The story of two lads from Belfast as they stumble their way through the London gay underworld in search of 'gainful employment'. This being the offering of sexual favours to older gay men in order to subsidize their respective giros. However, when one of the lads accidentally shags a punter (Steven Berkoff) to death, they are forced to look for 'work' elsewhere. It is then that they discover the myth of 'The Bread in the Bed' - a huge bed full of money. 'Nine Dead Gay Guys' is the outrageous but hilarious result of the ensuing caper as the lads begin the search for the elusive bed.
