Erwin Wagenhofer
Over the years 35-year-old truck driver Don Pedro and his paraplegic business partner have devised an elaborate, nifty but also illegal system whereby they smuggle African refugees to Europe. Jackie, a young Nigerian woman, is on the run across the Sahara going north, her school-age son Theo at her side. Their destination is Geneva. At the border between Africa and Europe, they meet for the first time. Pedro successfully carries the two passengers to Europe and falls in love with Jackie along the way. But the longer the trip the more complicated and desperate the situation becomes for Don Pedro.
