At the film's opening, we learn of The Writer's three rules for his productions, no feeding his pet/bartender Rocco Coco, no falling in love with each other, and no drinking; all will be broken by himself or his cast at the end of the film.Ribbon Around The Bomb, the musical film from the minds of Blossoms and DahDitDit is the bizarro musical comedy behind the smash UK No.1 of the same name. Featuring 6 songs from their No.1 selling album, the band themselves, and a host of other characters the film is a one-shot leap into the mind of director Edwin Burdis. He spins a tale of a struggling theatre director and writer played by Bafta winner Daniel Rigby, attempting to reinvigorate their career with one last play, while managing his cast a critical reviewer, and his own inner demons.
