Bertha Benz - Carl Benz’ business partner and wife - was instrumental in Mercedes-Benz’ foundation. The film tells the story of the world’s first long distance drive in a car from Mannheim to Pforzheim, Germany in 1888. Early one morning, Bertha took her two sons out for the twelve hour, 106 km / 65 mile trip. She understood the potential of her husband’s invention, and was determined to prove it worked at a time when people were skeptical of this new technology.
