In this touching road movie, a low-class young man is hired to drive a rich, elderly countess to Monte Carlo. Due to several setbacks along the way – which produce both comic and thrilling moments – the young man slowly wins the countess' respect. An unusual and endearing friendship between the two develops.
Part of the No More Heroes series: five young talented filmmakers were given the opportunity to make their first or second full length feature film about individuals who consciously turn their backs on society: No More Heroes provided five films that show drama, great and small, in an unexpected and characteristic way.
