Slovenia, spring of 1999. Two friends from a small village decide to transform their mopeds into choppers and embark on a journey. On the road through Slovenia and Croatia - two countries just recently separated from Yugoslavia - they are accompanied by a young runaway woman with a mysterious past, and an old biker who has seen the world in search of freedom but still hasn’t found it. They challenge each other and themselves through shared experiences, which break their ties and conception of the old, thus giving way to the new. But the path is treacherous and with the sudden death of a companion, friendship is at stake and pain is unbearable without someone to blame.
