A ragtag group of friends and drinking buddies help a pal turn the tables on a con man in this easy-going comedy. Kaja is a sweet natured but easily confused man who works as a security guard at a museum near Prague. Kaja is a regular at a local tavern run by Tonda, an ex-con with a soft spot for guys who've been let out of prison and are looking to start their lives over. One day, while shopping at the local market, a trickster takes advantage of Kaja and bilks him out of all his money in a rigged game of chance. It isn't until after the fact that Kaja realizes he's been cheated, and when Tonda hears about what's happened, he decides he and his friends need to get justice for Kaja. With the help of one-time pickpocket Pepe, magician turned gambler Mrklas, poker sharks Balun and Lada, Tonda's long-suffering girl friend Andula and Kaja's often exasperated wife Jitka, Tonda maps out an elaborate scheme to outwit the con man who swindled Kaja.
Film was adapted from a short story by Czech writer Petr Sabach.
