The plan seemed perfect. They take over the illegal casino in London and get the money around one million pounds in cash. Golden Pole was forced to give the ring despite his reservations.

But the bad guys started shooting. Michael freaked-out and tried to back away. Tim had no chance but to beat sense into him with a fire extinguisher, which resulted in Michael boarding a plane senseless. Then, a volcano in Iceland started spewing ash like crazy and all the flights had to be grounded. This is how John, Ben, Tim, and Michael got stranded in Lithuania.

Michael wakes-up somewhere in a hotel, without a slightest idea where he is. He can not find his friends, but instead he finds the money that John hid inside a toilet cistern. He hits the road with a sack full of cash only to learn that he is in London no more. Malaysia neither. The learning comes costly when local bullies rip him clean, setting Michael on a crusade to get back a million pounds in a country he does not know full of people he does not understand.

At the same time John wakes up alone in an empty apartment naked and chained to a radiator. After a horny Catholic priest discovers him with a hooker, John escapes still naked and chained to the radiator only to start a romance with a local hooker.

And above all this, a group of hitmen from London come to get their money back and teach John, Ben, Tim and Michael their last lesson. It all ends in a surreal wedding party that turns into a grotesque shoot-out with the local smugglers. John, Ben, Tim, and Michael barely escape only to find themselves in a new situation that makes their all previous experiences look like a pleasant vacation.
