The main attraction of this comedy is to see the popular Danish rock group Shu-bi-dua in action. The story puts Johnny Jazz Sr. (lead singer Michael Bundesen) in with a group of soldiers who rescue a woman who ran a resort in Jutland. The soldiers learn from her that her hotel was taken over by a German officer to hide something in. Johnny Sr. returns home and passes this story on to his son Johnny Jazz Jr. (also Michael Bundesen), who, together with the sons of the other soldiers in the rescue squad, seeks out what he now believes to have been the missing gold of the Third Reich. Along the way, they run into ghosts of all sorts, and they discover that the gold wasn't where they thought it was. The soundtrack is provided, of course, by none other than the group Shu-bi-dua.
