rated for 0 + years
A true, scary story about two innocent bus-drivers who get caught in Morocco driving 700 pounds of dope around. Although their employer admits both had no idea of their illegal cargo, they wander into the slammer for five years out of pure negligence and learn to survive in a world where a pack of cigarettes is more valuable than a human life. One of the most successful Belgian films of the season.
