A stirring drama with a distinct feminine voice from awardwinning filmmaker Sacha Polak.

In a desperate attempt to leave the past behind, Nina is wandering along Europe's motorways. She meets a German lorry driver, Matthias, and joins him on his journeys. Nina doesn't reveal much about who she is, though. Slowly it becomes clear that Nina's drive to hang around in the truckers' scene is a result of the pain caused by the ultimate betrayal that has befallen her.
