Synopsis:

Maybe the best thing to come out of Scandinavia during the hippie years was, in fact, the story of a radical libertarian, Simon Spies, and a hedonist capitalist, Mogens Glistrup. Their friendship, forged by being outsiders in a conformist country, took them through years of adulation and success,  but also vilification and imprisonment. A joyride through taxation, hookers and politics.
