Wearing his 'Sonic the Hedgehog' pyjamas, Sam Kellow sleepwalks out of the hotel room in Toronto where he is staying with his parents ...and wakes to find the door locked behind him. Exploring the hotel hallway, Sam meets Nasty Muriel, Droopy George and their chickenpox-covered son, Wilfred, who kidnap him and force him to enter a competition. Sam has the opportunity to win the Big Bazoohley - the big jackpot - and save his family's finances, but nothing is ever as simple as it seems and what follows is a hilarious romp that will make you laugh out loud.
