After biology student Jule (Emde) discovers that she is pregnant, she sets out in her old Mercedes “303” camper van on a journey to Portugal to tell her boyfriend, Alex, who works there. Outside of Berlin, she picks up Jan (Spieker), a political science student, who is hitch-hiking to Spain to find his biological father, whom he has never met before. Jan feels that people are selfish by nature, and is not surprised that his original ride leaves him stranded by the road, even before his journey begins. Jule, in contrast, believes that people are fundamentally kind, and friendly, and offers Jan a lift. Although they only plan to travel as far as Cologne together, as each mile passes, they soon learn more about each other’s lives.

While „on the road,“ intense chemistry develops between the two as they share impassioned and deep conversations about capitalism, human nature, love and relationships and the meaning of life. Soon their trip becomes an emotional roller coaster, which finds them desperately trying not to fall in love with each other. Spieker and Emde breathe life into Weingartner and Eggert’s screenplay that unfolds onto the dreamlike backdrop of the European countryside skillfully lensed by Lempe and Krause.

In Person: Actor Anton Spieker
