Oliver is a hard-working Portfolio Manager, living life in the fast lane. But after a devastating car crash he ends up in hospital. Diagnosis: paraplegia. Two months of rehab should prepare him for a life in a wheelchair, but Oliver is just not up for it. In rehab he stumbles into the “Goldfish Group”, a band of disabled roommates in a board and care home. When Oliver learns that his illegal financial transactions in Zurich are about to blow, he gets an idea: “Wouldn't a bus with a bunch of handicapped people make the perfect disguise to smuggle 1.2 million Euros across the German-Swiss border?” As he is able to fulfil his plan, things are about to go south when the members of the “Goldfish Group” act differently than they were supposed to… It all ends up in a rousing road trip – beyond the boundaries of greed, glamour, luck and legality.
