Driving Volkswagen (Juergen in seinem Passat)

Driving Volkswagen
Scene from "Driving Volkswagen"

Juergen likes Lisie and, basically, Lisie likes Juergen too. Lisie´s son Anton likes his mother and his father. He definitely doesn’t like Juergen.

As chance would have it, Anton ends up driving with Juergen in his Volkswagen. When Juergen starts telling a boring moralistic tale, the outside world suddenly melts together with his words. In an unexpected turn of events, the mismatched pair Juergen and Anton find themselves thrown together as partners in crime.
