Synopsis: It's summer, and recent college graduate Nadir has accepted to drive his father's old taxi from their home in the Netherlands to his family's home country of Morocco to deliver it to a friend. Without notice his two friends Abdel and Zakaria join him on the trip. Nadir doesn't want to waste time, but his friends insist on picking up a French hitchhiker and letting her show them around Barcelona. We eventually learn that there is more to the trip for Nadir than just delivering a car, and it becomes a conflict that threatens the three men's friendship.

- I can do it with my eyes shut.

Nearly there!

- Even your sister's better.

You nearly made it.

Gimme 5 euro.

Hey! I'll tell your father you eat pork!

Five euro. You, where's your five euro?

Come on, come on... Five...

Ten... Nice doing business with you.

Now f*ck off!

Abdel, your mother asked...

- Don't talk about my mother!

She said you have to come in.

Go and tell her I'm helping

some old ladies carry groceries.

Hey, hey... Have one.

Off you go, douchebag!

You know what's funny?

First I saw her and thought: "Wow".

Then I saw you. Lovely!

But to be honest, she is prettier.

I'm only joking! You're both just as pretty.

I usually don't even fancy Moroccan girls.

I hope you don't mind me

being so honest?


It's your own risk.

Friends are throwing a party

in some club. You should come too.

It's gonna be great.

Nice party.

- Thanks.

It took me a long time,

especially those decorations up there...


A great party.

- Thanks, man.

My parents, only daughter,

you know how it goes.

Your sister looks lovely.

She's beautiful man...

Best day of her life. Or my parents' life

anyway. Everybody is here.

You'll see, people will start talking.

I was calculating. It must have cost

about 20,000 euro. Am I right?

How much the wedding cost your parents.

Food and drink for 200. Hotels...

Who cares, man?

Nice suit, by the way.

You think?

- Is it new?

Especially for today. Hugo Boss.

- F*ck off, real Hugo Boss?

Of course it's real.

Straight from Milan. Out of Mounir's trunk.

What did you give him?

- Two.

Two what? You gave him 200?

You still owe me 300!

Or did you forget?

You owe me 50 euro.

- Easy! Easy!

The suit hasn't been paid for, yet.

What are we doing tonight?

It's a kind of family day.

I promised to show the bridegroom's

two nieces around town.

Those twins?

- Country girls.

They'd even be impressed by Burger King.

I have to go to Morocco tomorrow.

- Why is that?

I only found out today.

My father sold the old taxi to a friend.

I have to take it.

What? Crazy. It's 3000 km.

What did you say?

I gave him an angry look and said: Yes dad.

I'm leaving at dawn.

- I'll come with you. I have no plans.

You don't need to.

- We'll take turns driving.

We can talk business on the way.

I have good news!

No man, my father told me

not to take you guys.

What did he say?

- You really want to know?

"Don't take the Tunisian and the clown."

- Did he call me Tunisian?

It's only business. I'll just

drop the taxi and fly home.

I'll be back in a few days to talk business.


I can't change your mind?

Get off the hood. You'll dent it.

I couldn't find a cab.

Not in the car.

How was the rest of the party?

The party was great.

- It was?

Yeah. Cleaned up the mess,

woke up early.

Everyone was still asleep.

- Did you get any sleep?

No, you?

An hour.

I didn't sleep either.

Shit! The twins?

- I don't want to know.

You should, it's a great story.

- They're my in-laws now.

Let him speak!

It's bad enough that

he scandalised my family.

Don't bother, it doesn't work.

- There's a tape in it!

It's been in there since 2001.

It only receives AM channels.

AM channels? I don't know any of them.


Do they know this car hasn't got airco?

- I don't know.

I only have to deliver it.

It's only been in Holland.

You don't need airco in Holland.

- But it's boiling in the fucking car.

Show some respect for this car.

It's put bread on the table for 15 years.

When my father bought this car, it was

the flashiest car in the neighbourhood.

Shouldn't we wake him?
