In the sweltering summer of 1665 the Plague sweeps through London. Three prisoners in Newgate Prison, believing they are doomed, indulge in drunkenness and debauchery. One of them, a young alchemist, believes he has a cure and begs his cellmates to help him make it.
Unfortunately the missing ingredient is gold, something they have no hope of obtaining without making good use of the only currencies at their disposal: sex, wit and lies.
