Štef and Miro are a business-friendly tandem from dreams or nightmares. Both of them learned their trade, Štef as a merchant and Miro as a mechanic, on the street, which is often the training ground for their business trials and errors. Always within reach of success, which, as the title suggests, is (un)luckily, regularly missing. Štef is married to Rozi, a local seamstress who over the years, unnoticed by her, has turned into a female version of Štef, while Miro lives with his ex-mother-in-law after his wife left him.
