Road to La Paz
Argentinien/Holland | 2015 | Spielfilm | 92 min
Sebastián (35) has two passions: his favourite rock band Vox Dei and his ageing Peugeot 505 inherited from his father; everything else interests him little. Newly married and broke, he takes a job as a private chauffeur. One of his passengers is the elderly Muslim Jalil, who makes him an unusual offer: Sebastián is to drive Jalil to his brother in La Paz, 3,000 kilometres away – a job Sebastián cannot refuse because of the good pay. However, it soon drives him to despair – the old man chews garlic incessantly, only wants to listen to Arabic music and instead of making fast progress, they have to stop five times a day to pray. Jalil has planned the trip down to the last detail, but everything turns out quite differently.
