Synopsis

Jurek Kiler, a cab driver, is a nice man in many aspects quite usual, but dogged by unusual bad luck. One morning however, an anti-terrorist squad arrests him, thus changing his life completely. He is mistaken by the police for a ruthless, professional hit man nicknamed 'Kiler'. Shy, confused, and sometimes funny loser suddenly begins to be regarded as a killer of international fame. He is admired and well-respected, not only by the inmates, but also by the police and prison officers. Even women take interest in him at last... After Jurek is sprung from jail by gangsters, he gets to know them better and finally finds out why they got him out of prison – then he ceases enjoying his fame and fortune. He resolves to take action. He leads the bigwigs down the garden path and comes unscathed out of it. After many adventures, pursuits and unexpected twists of the plot, the real killer finally gets caught and Jurek may return to his usual self. If it were not for the fact that for millions he still is a dangerous, (almost) perfect killer.
