The Goldfish

A gang of disabled flatmates attempt to smuggle black money from Switzerland to Germany.

Oliver is a hard-working portfolio manager, living life in the fast lane. But after a devastating car crash he ends up paraplegic. 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 has an idea: Using a bus full of handicapped people as the perfect disguise to smuggle 1.2 million Euros across the German-Swiss border. Yet 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.
