Synopsis

The young construction workers Bassi and Edwin are considered the lazy black sheep of their brigade, and they also shirk their responsibilities within their living community. They don't see any need to change these attitudes until they decide to court Thea and Susi.

 

When picking the girls up for a date, the boys get caught up a heated residents' meeting and decide to play a prank by pretending to be the officials who have come to resolve the conflict. Unfortunately for them, they discover that the conflict is within their own living community and getting out of their new roles won’t be so easy.
