Funny and charming
The two old men will melt your heart through a journey of self-discovery, love and loss. It's not just another Holocaust movie, but a look to the lives of two everyday people who hold on to the past too much and are too stubborn to change beliefs, however they manage to live with eachother during a life-changing roadtrip.
