Trapped in a seedy LA apartment, Franklin Franklin (Matt Lucas) has a dead landlord on the kitchen floor and is surrounded by eccentric neighbors: the stoner (Johnny Knoxville) the wanna-be stripper (Juno Temple) and the artist (James Caan). To add to his chaos, a drunk investigator (Billy Crystal) is questioning him. But none of this fazes Franklin. He dreams of Switzerland, and waits each day for an envelope from his institutionalized brother. Then, one day the envelope doesn't come and Franklin becomes unhinged. Little does he know...his crazy brother has the secret that will set him free.

Franklin Franklin (Lucas) plays the alphorn and dreams of Switzerland. His crazy brother sends him fingernail clippings in the mail. One of his neighbours is a forgetful pot-head, the other a gruff busy-body who doesn't miss anything. Across the street live a mother and her fifteen-year-old daughter, whom he likes to watch from his window, but none of these are Franklin's real problem. The real problem is his landlord lying dead on the kitchen floor. Switzerland seems further and further away.
