Synopsis

April 1974. Two Swiss radio journalists are sent to Portugal to report on Swiss aid in that country. Bob, a technician nearing retirement, accompanies them in his trusty Combi VW. But when they get there, nothing goes to plan: there are tensions between feminist Julie and Cauvin, the wily war reporter. Despite all the best intentions of Pelé, the young Portuguese translator, there is no other option but to abort the mission. But the tide of History ends up blowing the Combi VW right into the heart of the Carnation Revolution.
