Based on the classic 1975 childrens book by Roald Dahl, Danny lives with his widowed father in a gypsy caravan at the back of a petrol station. 

To Danny their life is perfect. Danny is the youngest car mechanic around, his father is his best friend and in Danny's words is "the most marvellous and exciting father a boy ever had". They have one dark cloud looming over their lives in the form of Mr Hazell, who owns the local brewery and is keen to move Danny and his father off their land. 

Danny's dad however has a secret and this leads them through a daring and hilarious adventure.
