The movie is set in the border country between Norway and Sweden, where we meet a bunch of scruffy guys; Oscar, Thor, Billy and Tresko (The Clog), who share a criminal past. They are working in a strange factory in the middle of nowhere producing plastic Christmas trees. But they are also gamblers. Like most people they never win anything, until now! This is the story of that time they actually won 1.739.361 Norwegian Kroner, a number that proves impossible to divide into four equal parts… and that is when the fun begins!
