Shoky & Morthy: The Last Big Thing

What is a YouTuber willing to do to be taken seriously? Prepare something big and film it. Štěpán Kozub as Šimon, alias Shoky, and Jakub Štáfek as Martin, alias Morthy, are two reckless boys whose dwindling YouTube career is about to change forever due to an accident on the 168th kilometre of the D1 motorway, near a place called The Nine Crosses. This comedy about the quest for followers, shooting videos on the edge and delayed maturity has just been finished by director Andy Fehu.

Shoky and Morthy have been friends since school and are YouTubers with a promising career. Morthy, however, is growing tired of their childish pranks and, what’s more, he has a new girlfriend, ambitious influencer Sára. And when their new controversial video of a grocery store robbery is hugely criticized on social networks, they are sentenced to community work and their channel is demonetized, the boys finally decide to split and go their own ways. The only chance to improve their tarnished YouTube reputation is a devilish plan for one “last big thing”. Shoky, Morthy and Sára, with ambitious ghost hunter Lucie and older, traditional YouTuber Radomil, embark on a wild ride to a mysterious roadhouse, The Nine Crosses.
