Jure, Šimun, Joso, Mate and other guest workers arrive to their hometown in the Dalmatian inlands. They brag about their newly acquired wealth and almost never leave the local bar. Only Šimun, who has spent fifteen years working in Germany but never earned enough money, keeps to the side. Soon Jure gets so annoyed at Šimun while playing cards, that he challenges him to a duel: whoever earned less money will have to strip before the whole village. Simun seems to be the loser, but soon everyone finds out that his mattress is full of German marks. Jure is ashamed, but soon finds out that his neighbor Joso helped Šimun in this little fraud…
