Netflix’s ‘Dead End’ (originally titled ‘Pewnego Razu na Krajowej Jedynce’) is a Polish dark comedy series that revolves around a group of strangers sharing a ride together and a novice bank robber.

When they realize that they are in the wrong car and have their hands on two million zlotys that could potentially change their lives, they refuse to let go of the money and hence, are chased by the robber.
