14 years after WESTEND (2001), comes the sequel WHITE KNIGHTS: jobless beer-drinking buddies Mike and Alfred are recruited by their old companion Rasto to transfer a suitcase with "important documents" to Luxembourg. While Mike takes the mission too seriously and Alfred falls in love with the seductive hitchhiker Anja, Rasto enjoys getting 'coached and controlled' by the charming consultant Katja.

A laid-back black & white road movie with a nonchalant retrograde style.
