Dan Trunkman (Vince Vaughn) resigns from work when his boss tried to get him to accept a 5% salary reduction. Before he resigned, he claims it is working on founding his own company and anyone of his colleagues would like to work in a more fair should follow. Only two people dare to follow Dan: Timothy McWinters (Tom Wilkinson), an elderly man who was fired, and Mike Pancake (Dave Franco), a young man who gave an interview on the same day. A year later, the three are as broke as when it left the road. The three go to Germany in the hope that they will enter into a business that fills their accounts, but their home count does not match that of the Germans.
