The film tells the story of a unique friendship. Two gypsy boys are trying to fulfill their childhood dream by competing in the local village rally with their only treasure: a thirty year old, rusty and wheelless BMW. While one of them struggles with the law due to petty thefts, the other one, even though being almost blind decides to be the navigator. Despite their age one of them is perfect in car mechanics, they can drive, their ambition is endless. But they lack any background, they don’t even have a car. However creativity driven by the lack of money sometimes overcomes the greatest difficulties.
Among the nominees for the 2011 Robert Bosch Stiftung Co-production Prize in the documentary category was the Romanian-German project The Devil's Choice by director Monica Lazurean-Gorgan who developed the project at the 2010 Ex Oriente Film and pitched it at the 2010 East European Forum.
