Not a blockbuster at the time of its release, it has since achieved the status of a cult film. Typical Coen Brothers fare, the movie is replete with symbolism, visual gags, yodeling folk music, unconventional characters, flamboyant camera work, pathos and idiosyncratic dialogue.

H.I. was a robber, Ed worked in the police. Then they got married. The only thing this extraordinary couple lacked for their happiness was children. To have offspring, they decide to steal a baby from a large family, hoping the parents won't notice the loss. But it seems they will soon regret their decision.
