This hilarious Comedy focuses on the aristocratic family of the Dukes of Bournemouth, which many consider cursed. One of their recent misfortunes happened when the only heir Thomas henry Butterfly Rainbow Peace, was left behind and lost in 1960’s.

Meanwhile Tommy Patel (Eric Idle) who has grown in an Asian/Indian family seems a bit odd with his blue eyes, fair skin and blond hair. Tommy works for the Bournemouth family’s firm.

When a long lost son, Henry Bullock (Rick Moranis), and heir of the family suddenly shows up from America he and Tommy becomes best friends.

However, when Tommy starts to doubt his story and his background the plot thickens with complication and hilarities.
