In this madcap comedy, Svend Aage (Jarl Friis-Mikkelsen) and Niels Peder (Ole Stephensen) team up to help a damsel in distress and an impoverished count. It seems that the count has a big farm or, in the more elegant prose befitting a nobleman, one might call it an "agricultural estate." A sleazy alliance of a chemical plant and a supermarket want to get the estate from the count for the cost of his outstanding debts. However, the count has one ace in the hole: a red cow that moos to indicate which horse to bet on in the Sunday races. Sunday is also when the count's debts come due. Svend is a footloose horse-trading type, and Niels is simply eager (usually to spend time with pretty women), but together they take on the challenge of extricating the count from his predicament. Along the way, they borrow routines from the Marx Brothers, from Monty Python, Saturday Night Live and a host of others.
