Hilarious movie! Simon - a kind hatred guy, loving family man, handyman, can barely make the ends meet, so to support his family he accepts a job offer from Russian mafia or so called "new russians" which of course gets him into trouble. Avoiding russian prison he decides to run away to Holland, with he plan to get into prison there, for among russians Dutch prisons are known to be luxuriuos. But getting into prison appears to be more difficult than one would imagine. That's whwere the adventure starts. It's a really funny, entertaining movie!
