There was someone standing further along the beach, facing out to
sea. An old man dressed in... I blinked... battle fatigues? Second
World War U.S. by the looks of the helmet. I looked on for a
moment, squinting into the sun-streaked coconut smoke. `You won't
like Bonga's Guest House, I can tell you now. Maximo Bonga...' said
the fisherman's wife. She was lost for words, shaking her head.
`Maximum Bongo?' I asked.`Bonga,' she said. `It means flamboyant.'
Based on a true story On one of South East Asia's most remote
beaches, a young woman's body is found. The corrupt local police
think they have found the perfect fall guy in Maximo Bonga -
cantankerous World War Two veteran and owner of the weirdest
guesthouse in town. But unbeknownst to them, an unlikely friendship
has been forged between Maximo and John, one of the boarders of
Maximo's guest-house-cum-boot-camp, where an old machine gun and
camouflaged mantraps stand guard, sandbags form fences and a
tyrannical pet rooster terrorises the guests. Along with an
eccentric bunch of modern-world rejects, John sets out to defend
the old soldier in a kangaroo court set up at the local cockpit, in
a paradise like no other.
