Summary

Two colleagues-electricians get an offer to repaire damaged power lines on one of the Caribbean islands. They can take their wifes with them, that’s why they decide to solve the stereotype of their marital sex in an original way in the exotic environment of the Caribbean island. (This film is based on the first original script by Michal Viewegh. The previous movies were based on the writer's original books).
