Two butchers - the nihilistic dopehead Bjarne and the heavily sweaty inner fat man Svend - are completely fed up with their arrogant boss and decide to open their own delicatessen. Business is not really going well. Until an electrician has an accident in the cold store and a temporary lack of meat forces the psychotic butcher duo to unorthodox solutions. The new specialty, chickie-wickie, is a huge success. Svend wants to continue the business, but Bjarne does not really like that. Soon people start to disappear and to make matters worse, Bjarne's reticent twin brother and animal lover Eigil also wakes up from a coma ...

This jet-black comedy by Anders Thomas Jensen (Flickering Lights and Adam's Apples) is just as wrong as the chickie-wickie, but wonderfully surreal, amoral and politically incorrect. Sweeny Todd or Delicatessen, but packaged as merciless social satire.
