Jerk Poertscher, a Californian wine magnate, is facing ruin. His only chance of escape from shame - and knife-wielding creditors - lies in the recipe of the legendary wine 'Uhudler'. Distant relatives from Burgenland in Austria have been guarding its secret for many generations. Armed with cunning contract proposals, Jerk makes his way to Burgenland. Unbeknownst to him, his cold-hearted sister Joanna and the shady lender Sharky are also heading to Austria, each hatching plans of their own. But for all its pleasure, the consumption of Uhudler has nasty side effects, as all three are soon to discover.
