Road movie which develops the friendship of a mafia delivery man and a former boxing champion with a drink problem ...
Two men form an unlikely partnership in this entertaining and fast moving road movie which hurtles through countries and moves backwards and forwards through time introducing several characters,in addition to the leads, all of whom have their own agenda. Antonio, a mafia employee, is instructed to deliver a car to a team of Russians in Northern Europe. Along the way he meets Carlos, a former champion boxer with a penchant for beer and a love of life. As the journey progresses their trust and friendship grows and the situations they find themselves in increasingly challenge this developing bond. Thoroughly recommended.
