Two friends, Svend and Bjarne, are temperamental opposites. Svend's great ambition is driven by an equally large inferiority complex, while Bjarne - a laconic pot-smoker and survivor of a car accident that has left his twin brother, Eigil, in a coma - cares about hardly anything at all. Starting their own butcher shop offers Svend and Bjarne an escape from their vicious boss Holger, but the new business fails to attract many customers until a bizarre accident leads Svend to change the main ingredient in their signature dish. Soon the pair is cleaning up, but can they keep the fillets flying before their clientele are consumed?
