I'm All Good (U m? dobrý)

In this comedy, friends take the law into their own hands when one of their friends falls victim to con men. Tonda and his companion Andula run a pub called At the Ferryman's. Pub-goer Kája, whose marriage is on the rocks because of his gambling, plays cards at the pub with his friends. Besides a security guard, he has saved a pretty penny by posing as a chimney sweep for newlywed photos. Now, he wants to use the money to take his wife on a long-promised seaside vacation, a promise that could breathe new life into their relationship. In a moment of weakness, Kája loses all of his savings. Scared of losing his wife, he requests the help of his pub friends.
