EGYPT. 1928. Stanley and Oliver are searching for the rumoured tomb of the famous female Pharaoh Hatchetsoup. There have been many expeditions before, but none have been successful.
Will this expedition succeed where others have failed? Stan and Ollie’s guide Ali Fliknife is bent on leading them astray, but despite this, they (accidentally ) find the tomb and get a little more than they bargained for - including a selecton of ABBA songs!
