Dave, Luke, Showbag, and Brick are four brothers, all from different fathers, living with their mother in the same somewhat rundown house in which they were born. They survive purely on a life of crime. Not massive stuff, but enough to keep a roof over their heads, some decent wheels in the garage, and an unlimited supply of beer in the fridge.
The family is a force to be reckoned with and along with Luke’s twin sister Angelina, have a pretty tough reputation with the locals as well as the local law. With their bloodline dating back to Seamus Johnson, the famous Irish pickpocket, some might say their criminal behaviour was predestined. But if you ask the Johnsons, they’ll tell you they’re just trying to make a living like everyone else, albeit illegally.
The Johnsons is a black comedy about a crime family living the suburban dream.
