“The moment before you wake up, that’s the Swedish moment. You should hold on to it as long as possible.”

Kari Lampikallio is a schlager singer adored by women, on his way for a vacation trip, with just a few obstacles – a corpse in the trunk and a jealous psychopath wife, Sonja. Old bandmates are summoned to sort things out, but they both have their own interests in making Kari’s life a major pain.
