Summary

This black comedy about amateur gangsters is based in an environment of young musicians, who come face to face with the practices of the underworld and mafia. Luki, Marty, Tom and Radek form a band of young rockers, who call themselves The Pariahs and try to break through by playing in dubious clubs and bars. The manager of rock star notices them and offers to work with them. But the boys are badly in need of money for equipment and so they think up a plan to kidnap the dog of a wealthy eccentric. The plan works, they get their money, but they lose the money when their car explodes. The dog returns to its kidnappers and it's back to square one again. (A computer game of the same name came out to coincide with the premier.)
