Plot: Bruno Volta, a spin-doctor and a hustler, meets his challenge when one day his partner, Agnieszka, meets under unusual circumstances a girl named Viki. Agnieszka’s new friend finds a mysterious and extremely precious object in the wall of an old house that grabs Volta’s undivided and total attention: the crown that belonged to Casimir the Great, the last medieval Polish king from Piast dynasty.  Volta cannot miss this million-dollar opportunity. Together with the bodyguard, Dycha, he is ready for anything to get possession of the treasure. However, it will not be as easy as it seems because innocent-looking Viki is in fact a worthy rival. The film takes place in one of Poland’s oldest and most beautiful cities, Lublin, and continues in the tradition of Machulski’s best caper stories: Vabank and Vinci.
