A weird and enigmatic car salesman with exceptional pleasure sees off desperate clients in four wheeled wrecks.

If wheels and chasses ‘seem new’, then these are, in fact, new cars. Could his behaviour serve as a metaphor of Libyan government for those living in Benghazi? This short documentary was made at the first documentary workshop of the Scottish Documentary Institute in Libya.
