This is the story of a tragicomic journey to Germany by an Israeli used car dealer and his faithful assistant, who try to earn a handsome profit selling an American luxury car - Lincoln Continental Limousine - that they bought in Israel for an once-in-a-lifetime bargain price.
It’s the story of a dream and how it ishattered, a journey of two men who wander through a rich, strange and frozen Germany in the dead of winter, initially trying to make a quick buck and eventually struggling to escape with their last few pennies and most of all – their dignity.
It’s also the story of the metamorphosis of a gleaming and brilliant American symbol that fires the imagination of the two and then nearly drives them out of their minds.
A film about friendship and reconciliation while in the background are echoes of the dark days in the history of the two nations and the Israeli collective memory.
