Zoli and Barba, inseparable friends and outcasts, live in a rehabilitation facility where life seems directionless. Zoli needs life-saving surgery but does not want his absent father to support him financially out of guilt and pity. When a mysterious wheelchair-using man, Rupasov, enters the facility newly released from prison, he quickly adopts the two friends and offers them an opportunity to make some extra money by helping him work. The job waiting for Zoli and Barba, however, turns out to be a murder, as they find out that Rupasov is a hitman.
In his highly original and action-packed dark comedy of a wheelchair-using assassin gang, Hungarian director Attila Till skillfully blends reality with fantasy. He offers a gentle probe into the lives of the protagonists living on the edge of society and desirous of things that able-bodied people take for granted.
Kills on Wheels, dir. Attila Till, Hungary 2016, 105 mins
