Vincent's mother has passed away, but Vincent vows to fulfill her last wish and let her see the sea one last time. The problem is how to get her ashes there, since Vincent suffers from Tourette Syndrome and has been packed off to a clinic by his father. Thanks to the anorexic Marie, she, Vincent and his obsessive-compulsive roommate Alex make off with a battered car and travel to Italy. Right behind them are Vincent's pompous father and therapist Dr. Rose, a constantly bickering couple that could easily pass for neurotic themselves. An adventurous and momentous journey begins of whose end only one thing is certain - none of those involved will ever be the same again...
