When Kuddusi Yurdum misses the final answer on the TV gameshow "Şans Kapıyı Kırınca", his family is given a consolation prize: a vacation to Barboonia, a fictional "banana republic" island country near Cuba. They are welcomed there by the country's dictator President Carlos, in order to stop an assassination plot by the CIA.
