Arvid and Harald are brothers. But there the semblance ends. Arvid is a peaceable bank clerk. Harald is a tough crook. Arvid is the hero of the day when he thwarts a bank robber, but by doing so he discovers that he has tampered with somebody else's destiny. He has to make amends, which will require Harald's help. Harald wants to do his fraternal duty and puts his skills at Arvid's disposal. In no time at all, aided and abetted by two cooks and a reluctant immigrant, they rob a security van. But that proves just the start of Arvid and Harald's criminal and charitable career, which turns out to be long and bloody until higher powers take stock of the death toll.
The first ever Danish black comedy gangster film. A rip-roaring tall story packed with armed robbery, explosives and sudden death, all perpetrated with the best intentions - because the film is about all the disasters a guy unleashes when he is determined to help other people.
