A British comedy that shall win the hearts of 38 million Poles. Robbie, Albert, Rhino, and Mo meet on at a turning point of their lives. They are unemployed and broke, but they can count on one another. Mo is a fearless kleptomaniac who is afraid of nothing. Albert does not know what year he’s living in, but he can have brilliant ideas. Robbie has a keen sense of smell and a good head on his shoulders, and Rhino has a sense of humour that can make anyone laugh. Together they can do anything. What awaits them is the most expensive whisky in the world, a Scottish  kilt, and an adventure they will remember for a long time.
