Directors/writers Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern play Ben and Gus, a farmer and a commuter in a small Belgian village, who cannot stand each other. After an accident both turn out to be paraplegic. The ensuing strange journey to Finland, where they want to find the manufacturer of the agricul-tural equipment that caused their handicap, is shot in beautiful black & white Cinemascope. The cast features some cameos, including a handful of very famous Belgians and one well-known Finnish director.
