Two young men, Martin and Rudi, both suffering from terminal cancer, get to know each other in a hospital room. They drown their desperation in Tequila and decide to take one last trip to the sea. Drunk and still in pajamas they steal the first fancy car they find, a 60’s Mercedes convertible.

This film wants to be a (bloodless) comedy by Quentin Tarantino AND a moving film about death and loss. And it fails both ways. Incredibly poor acting, a script full of platitudes, stupid gags and occasional blatant mistakes (the Stockholm syndrome is referred to as the Helsinki syndrome). Moritz Bleibtreu and Thierry van Werveke's hilarious foreign gangsters couldn't save this film.
