The Olsen Gang have now been entrusted to perform a task for the Prime Minister's department. They are to steal Hans Christian Andersen's original quill from the Danish Export Museum. But the Prime Minister's spin doctor, an old enemy of the gang, is about to play a trick; the pen is actually part of a shady deal with China. At stake is nothing less than the country's national sentiment, Egon's honour and 30 million kroner. But Egon has a plan! Meanwhile, government is turned on its head and the Queen's guards are suddenly dancing cancan.

The Olsen Gang, the legendary trio of lovable small-time crooks with big money dreams, have lent their name to more than a dozen films since 1968. For the first time, the three friends appear in an animated version.
