Synopsis: In this pitch black comedy the rivalry between two neighbors escalates into an all out war. True a maintenance error on a tractor they both end up, paralyzed, in a wheelchair. It seems they are doomed to stay together. They no longer focus their rage on each other but on the manufacturer of the tractor, in Helsinki. So get ready for a hilarious wheelchair road movie.

Are you sleeping?

Didnt you see my lamp?

Or are you blind?

You're good for nothing.

You shouldn't sleep

when it's harvesting time.

Oh god. Not him.


Good kitty.

Good kitty.

Too bad you weren't

at the meeting.

But I'm fine without you,

As always.

Excuse me for two seconds.

How far are you?

- He had to go. Won't be long.

He had to go?

- He won't be long.

This game's been going on

for two months. He's always absent.

He's messing with us.

Him working from home.

Are you crazy?

I'll get on this file.

It's illegal to dump chemicals

this close to an urban area.

Besides, my wife's pregnant.

- Call his mobile.

Well, the company's.

That stuff's everywhere.

Mr. Vives?

- Yes, hello?

Mr. Senac's here for you.


- Hello Mr. Senac.

Don't you live half an hour

from Paris by TGV?

Sorry, my reception is bad,

I'm in a tunnel.

Meet me in my office in half

and hour or you're sacked.

I'll be right there.

- I've had enough.

What are you doing...


I'd like an other room.

- Let's see.

It's not bad here.

They've come to get

your tractor.

Did you pay your installments?

When you lend money...

That is alright,

But you have to pay it all back.

But not you.

All you do is sleep and hang around.


- Nothing.


- Nothing.

He's everyone's favorite

to win Namur.

Everyone is doing incredibly well.

Five more Grand Prix to go

and now is an important time

because I'm now ahead of Michael.

But I have be on the offense.

Namur is next and

it's one of my favorite tracks.

You should do this on your own now.

Your roommate can.

The Siamese are leaving.

It's not getting any better.

Gentlemen, Good news.

We'll let you go.

Don't give up hope.

Never ever.

Science progresses each day.

What doesnt kill you

I better go. I'm tired.

I'm like a ball from

a pinball machine...

I'm rolling and rolling.

I'm like a ball from

a pinball machine...

I'm rolling and rolling.

Christ, it's hot.

Don't you have AC in your truck?

Only in my dreams.

My brother-in-law has a tractor...

with an AC.

But me? No way.

Don't you have one?

But it's a waste of gas.

You're right.

I have a car.

I had the choice of ABS or AC.

And I picked safety.

AC... no, ABS.

I'm still thinking in Francs.

But AC...

Would've been good.

Maybe next time.

It's so hot.

I drove my brother-in-law's

tractor the other day.

Put the AC on 20.

From dawn to dusk.

Rolling on.

I loved it.

Couldn't tell what time it was.

Are you too hot?

turn it down.

When it's 24 outside

you'll catch a cold when you get out.

It's a choice you have to make.

But it's a waste of gas.

Your mileage...

One liter. Diesel.

Yes. And in 10 to 15 years

AC will be standard.

No more choices.

AC for everyone.


I'm sure.




Right next to your colleague.

What are you doing here?

This pen doesn't work.


Helsinki... Are you two together?

- No.

Where are you going?

- Namur.

I'll make a reservation,

But disabled persons

must make their reservation

to make the arrangements.


Passport please

- Yes.


- Thank you.

His passport.

Thank you.

We've made reservations

for two yesterday.

One for Helsinki

and one for...


Ticker number QTV...

or U, I don't remember.

I need a valid number to help you.


But we've been robbed.

They stole everything.

Passports, credit cards, money...

- Sorry, but I can't help you.

Can't I give you my name?

Unfortunately, no. Sorry.

Two chicken legs.

What are your desserts?

- Fresh fruit salad.

Nothing else?

- No, nothing else.
