Synopsis

The opportunity to make some fast money by delivering a hot car moves Ana and Nicolae, a young couple from Romania, to take a bus from Bucharest to Vienna. When the arrive they are told to be patient; their car is not ready yet. Ana wants to go home, but Nicolae would rather forge on westward. With no money they are stuck in Vienna, and after a fight they split up, which leads to encounters with various locals. Nicolae meets Dana, a vivacious 30-year-old travel agent, and Ana gets acquainted with Jan, a department-store detective still suffering from his breakup with Rita, his ex-girlfriend across the hall. Martha, Jan's equally-apathetic roommate, keeps her head above water as a human crash-test dummy. When Ana and Nicolae meet again, their relationship is bathed in a new light.
