Hard-luck Stanislav is framed for smuggling endangered eagles across the border from Slovakia. Released from prison after 18 months, he ignores a tramp's advice to seek revenge and instead pays a friendly call to his former boss Zack, a "respectable" businessman running a health-conscious, meatless restaurant and living a palatial house with his eco-correct wife Sandra and two beautiful, if somewhat sheltered children. Stan figures that since he kept his mouth shut and took the fall, Zack will reward him with a considerable sum of money, maybe enough for the ex-con to go traveling, perhaps see Mexico and visit the Mayan pyramids. But Stanislav makes the mistake of first telling Andrew, a former security guard who got fired after Stan tried to help him catch a thief. And folks who are vegetarian can still be carnivores...An absurdist dark comedy, ONE HAND CAN'T CLAP will get a thumb(s) up from viewers looking for a taste of rare bird.
