Synopsis

Four middle-aged friends brotherly work together in Gerard’s garage in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Unfortunately business is not going too well. To save their garage, they need 40.000 euros fast. Junior employee Youssoef suggests that the four men should participate in the Rotterdam Marathon and find a sponsor. They agree and Youssoef becomes their coach. But initially the training sessions are a farce. The condition of the smoking, drinking, cake eating men, who play cards most of the day, is abominable. However, while training for the marathon, it becomes clear there is more at stake than just saving the garage.
