Friends, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to start their own business. They search for investors and the Hansons, a father and son owned company makes them a proposal which requires them to take out a big loan. But the Hansons eventually reveal that they set them up so that they can take over their business cheaply. So unless they can come up with the money to pay the loan, they'll lose everything. That's when they come up with the plan to kidnap the son for ransom which they will use to pay the loan. Of course they are not good kidnappers but the son learns what they are planning and decides to go along with them and ask for more money than they wanted.
