Three Estonian guys flee the Soviet Union, because they want to have a life in the free world as they’ve seen on TV. Swedes welcome the friends as real heroes, but eventually our dissidents discover that they’ve become nothing more than tedious immigrants who have to do something as lame as... work! But the boys are no quitters, so they come up with new crazy plans that guarantee success in the Western world.
