Yvan, a middle-aged classic car collector, arrives home one evening to find Elie, a skinny young junkie, robbing his apartment. In a moment of sympathy, Yvan agrees to drive Elie to his parents' house in his vintage Chevrolet. So begins this absurdist but affecting road movie, awarded the Cannes Film Festival FIPRESCI prize, that follows these two on a bizarre journey across the spectacular Belgian landscape.
