Moz has his principles and firmly sticks to them: »No cash, no hash«. He’s been a pot dealer for more than 20 years, with his business based in his small apartment where he lives with his girlfriend Nicki. One day, Nicki sees a rat in the run-down place, which puts their relationship to a hard test. Moz is a lazy, fat and unkempt small time crook, but British comedian Johnny Vegas plays him endearingly. In best BBC-tradition, IDEAL marries social realism with absurd humor in a satire with a big heart for the losers in society – and injects the otherwise aseptic sitcom genre with a high dose of »White Trash« culture.
