Andrei and his father Vasile live in the communist Romania. Unexpectedly, they receive news from Petrus, Vasile ́s brother who was assumed dead after an escape attempt years before.

Petrus was living in Hawaii all this time and on his death has left Andrei and Vasile a large legacy. They cannot inherit it, however, as the concept of private property does not exist in communist Romania.

The only alternative left to them is to try and claim their inheritance via a free country.
