Yishai Orian, the director of the film and the owner of an old Volkswagen beetle is about to become a father. His mechanic says that the beetle will not last long, while his wife complains that the car is unsuitable for a baby. Attempting to keep his beloved car, Yishai goes on a journey that begins with the previous owners of the beetle, continues to Jordan to renovate the old car, and ends with the birth of his first child. The exciting, funny, sad, and intimate memories of the beetle’s previous owners tells a touching story that helps highlight the director’s own journey.
