In this Finnish crime comedy, Vesa, a yuppie computer pro, is on a business trip when his wife makes the shocking announcement that she is leaving him for their Greek neighbor. Vesa immediately flies to the Helsinki airport in hopes of stopping them. En route, he ends up running over a man who later robs a bank, forcing Vesa to act as his getaway driver, and takes a woman as his hostage; she turns out to be his accomplice. As the forced driver, poor Vesa can do no more than what they tell him to do. The three end up pursued by both the police and some brutal thugs. As they flee, Vesa and the robbers cannot help but become good friends and partners in crime.
