Two friends from a small village in rural Slovenia transform their mopeds into choppers and embark on a journey, traveling through dreams of the past and visions of the future. On the road they are accompanied by a young runaway woman with a mysterious past and an old biker. Fueled by wild impulses and breaking free from conservative traditions, they encounter and comprehend things that were once unimaginable.

Director’s Statement:
Looking at the world today, which seems more closed up and divided than ever, we need stories that question this status quo. The characters of the movie are  confronted with prejudices into which they are pushed in one way or another. All too often we forget that the identity we carry as individuals is something that changes and is shaped based on the decisions we make on our path through life. Not to forget that even the journey itself requires a decision. The film deals with hope, personal beliefs and the idea of freedom, but at its core it is about the possibility to change; it is about the choices that we all have.
