Metallic Blues is a touching and amazing tragicomic road-movie, about two Israeli car dealers who risk it all in search of a better life, only to find out the most unexpected personal and historical truths. The opportunity of a lifetime has crossed paths with Shmuel and Siso, or so they think.
They invest US$5,000 in a vintage 1985 Lincoln Continental Limousine and plan to sell it in Germany for ?50,000. They ship the car to Germany, and bring themselves and their dreams to Hamburg where their nightmare begins.
Meanwhile, Shmuel experiences a very disturbing hallucination. The family stories of the Holocaust are taking over his mind?
A film about friendship and reconciliation surrounded with the memories of the dark days in the history of Germany and Israel.
