Yishai Oren loves his wife Eliraz and is overjoyed when she becomes pregnant. But Eliraz is adamant - Yishai's love for his clapped-out old Volkswagen Beetle is irrational, it's no family car and therefore has to go. Join Yishai and other "Beetlemaniacs" as we ride along with him on a road trip to redeem his cherished car taking him from his very pregnant wife in Jerusalem to a small village in Jordan.
