This comedy whisks the viewer off to the quiet Southern Bohemian town of Kameňákov. An array of typical Czech characters and archetypal families live life to an unvarying rhythm. The Novák's are a good example: the father is on the police force, his wife is a teacher, their daughter studies nursing, and nine-year-old Pepíček is a motor mouth commenting on anything and everything that happens. Imagine then the kid's surprise when two representatives of the English nobility arrive in order to claim the local palace (recovered through the post-Revolution restitution process). Small towns keep no secrets; soon everyone knows that the new lord of the manor has come to search for the treasure his father allegedly stashed away. And this juicy tidbit whets the appetites of the three local mafiosi in particular: a hardened criminal, the nouveau-riche Khon, and the town's dandy of a mayor.
