Centres on Cougar Glass, the narcissistic 30 year old who is once again celebrating his '19th Birthday' in order to seduce an unwitting young schoolboy. We find Cougar half naked under a tanning lamp, surrounded by stuffed birds and feeling increasingly tense. The Captain and elderly neighbour Cheetah Bee do everything in their power to keep Cougar calm as he gears up for the party; they know all too well what happens when things don't go to plan. Foxtrot Darling arrives dressed to impress, with a boyish charm and a twinkle in his eye - the party has got off to a flying start. Everything is running fairly smoothly until a knocking on the door presents an unexpected guest and the party is thrown into fifth gear. As tensions rise, the game plans shift and Cougar is forced to decide what his next move will be.
