Summary

Slovenia, the spring of 1999. Two friends from a small village decide to transform their mopeds into choppers and embark on a journey. Looking for freedom and love, they travel through dreams of the past and visions of the future. Driven by mad impulses and haunted by the constraints of tradition, they start believing and understanding things previously unimaginable. On the road through Slovenia and Croatia - two countries that have just recently seceded from Yugoslavia - they are accompanied by a young runaway woman with a mysterious past and an old biker who has seen the world in his search for freedom, which he has still not found. But the protagonists' road trip is not what they expected, and they must endure a quest for identity that irrevocably changes their lives. In a timeless story about the search for one's true self, the use of poetic realism and unconventional structure puts the audience in the driver's seat in this thought-provoking and emotional story.
