Synopsis

Arthur and Diana are siblings. Together with Diana’s two-year-old son, they leave Berlin for Paris for a short, relaxed trip for the required annual safety inspection of their rusty old Renault. But the journey won’t be relaxed, the direction won’t be Paris and whether the car will go along is definitely questionable. After an encounter with the police, an antagonistic stop at their mother’s place, an overly sensual party, a flat tire, a funeral, and repeated tumultuous car conversations, they will end up all the way down in Italy, with a few more friends and hopes than they had left with.
