This popular Swedish comedy brings back together the comics and musicians who were much appreciated in the short series Macken. The story concerns two brothers (Anders Eriksson and Jan Rippe) living in a rural part of Sweden, whose domain is a gas station. They are an amiable pair, wonderfully naive about the world around them and full of countrified common sense which enables them to sail through disasters which would paralyze more complicated folks. After a series of events which reunites them with the characters from the series, the boys decide to try and find out who their father is and look him up. Their journeys take them to Stockholm and Copenhagen, and they spend a considerable amount of time believing that a pitiful crook is their missing father, until they finally get things right and then encounter their real father (Hans Alfredson), a true zany.
