Goddess of 1967


Restored 2017


Distraught Japanese businessman obsessed with Citroën DS (French car brand nicknamed Goddess) and a troubled blind 17-year-old Aussie girl who promised to sell him one drive through the Australian Outback to kill her abusive grandfather. Jodhiyashu, a young and well-situated Japanese man is dreaming of such a car, and one fine day he finds an offering on the net. He calls the seller (a man living in Australia), they agree upon the price and so he travels to Australia in order to buy the car. But when he reaches his destination, there’s chaos all around: The seller and his wife lay dead in their house and, Deirdre, a 17-year-old blind girl lets him see the car, and then they start a 5-day trip through the outback, and, at the same time, a trip back in time into the early youth of the girl and into her family’s chronicle.
