Sinopsis

Slovenija, proljeće 1999. Dva prijatelja iz maloga sela odlučili su da transformišu svoje mopede u čopere i da krenu na put. U potrazi za slobodom i ljubavlju, putuju kroz snove o prošlosti i vizije budućnosti. Vođeni ludim impulsima i progonjeni konzervativnim kalupima tradicije, počinju da shvataju stvari koje prethodno nisu mogli ni zamisliti. Na putu kroz Sloveniju i Hrvatsku – zemlje koje su se upravo otcijepile od Jugoslavije – prati ih mlada, odbjegla žena misteriozne prošlosti i stari bajker koji je obišao svijet u potrazi za slobodom. Kroz zajednička iskustva oni jedni drugima i sami sebi postavljaju izazove koji prekidaju njihove veze sa prošlošću i otvaraju put za nešto novo. Ali, taj put je prevrtljiv i, uz iznenadnu smrt jednog od saputnika, pa stavlja prijateljstvo na provjeru.

Slovenia, the spring of 1999. Two friends from a small village decide to transform their mopeds vinto 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 conservative moulds of tradition, they start believing and understanding things that were previously unimaginable. On the road through Slovenia and Croatia – countries 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. These characters challenge each other and themselves through shared experiences, which break their ties to 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.
