It is shortly after rise of the Czechoslovak Republic, but a poor border villages under the Tatras have other worries. Former soldier Marek Orban (Michal Docolomanský) wants for all neighbors to raise money to leave for a better life in America, and therefore with a bunch of friends smuggled the horses from Poland. Yet it never caught in the act. The local customs officer Babušek (Leopold Haverl) is powerless. And therefore comes from Prague the new commander of the Financial Guard Halva (Radoslav Brzobohatý) with his men. Like Orban´s gang, Halva and his people have had a war experiences and are trained to fight.
