They were the most spectacular thing Denmark had to offer in the 1960s: two notorious drop-out provocateurs, Simon Spies and Mogens Glistrup. Spies, the hippy with a head for business and a weakness for beautiful women and scandal. Glistrup, the lawyer with political ambitions, mostly serious, but no less eccentric. The two friends start up the travel agency Spies Travel and make it Scandinavia's most successful. Then Glistrup admits openly that he doesn't pay taxes and follows up with the opinion that no-one should. One provocation too many. The film is as weird, comic and tragic as the true story behind it.
