Peep Show's David Mitchell and Robert Webb play lifelong friends Harry and Karl, whose magic double act falls apart after a guillotine illusion goes spectacularly wrong. Down on his luck and out of cash, Harry decides to stake everything on winning the prestigious International Magic Shield tournament, but will he be able to train his new assistant (Jessica Stevenson) in time?
Meanwhile, Karl also decides to enter the tournament, posing as a ridiculous psychic called The Mind Monger on the advice of his clueless agent, Otto (Darren Boyd). However, when Karl falls for a girl (Andrea Riseborough) who thinks his psychic powers are real, he has a difficult decision to make.
