Three Czech thieves find that while making off with a fortune is a breeze, remaining low-key after the heist poses an unexpected problem in director Jiri Chlumsky's breezy crime comedy. Upon botching a potentially lucrative scam of Cuban autoworkers, Ondrej (Ondrej Vetchy) is incarcerated, Tomas (Tomas Hanak) flees to France, and Michal (Michal Suchanek) begins turning a profit by taking tourists through Prague. Years later, the trio is reunited and dreams up a heist that is more ambitious than ever. While their first attempt proves unsuccessful, their second attempt lands the take of a lifetime. Now, if the three bumbling thieves can only maintain their modest lifestyles, they may actually get away with it.
