Ballad of Ecki and Robert, The (Schrott)

Ballad of Ecki and Robert, The

The shy taxi-driver Robert dreams of a career as a racing driver. His great dream finally looks like becoming reality when he meets the charismatic ex-racing driver Ecki. But Ecki is building his own car and financing it through some crooked deals. A close friendship develops between the two, but is unavoidably coloured by their different backgrounds. The day comes, though, when Robert is sitting in a racing car and driving towards an inevitable fate.
