Synopsis

Horia, a 17-year-old boy with his head in the clouds, was born and raised in a Romanian village by his libertine father, Petrică. After graduating high school, his heart is broken by the girl he loves madly. On an impulse, he decides to take his father’s old motorcycle and ride it illegally across the country in order to pursue her. The journey doesn’t go as he imagines, as many obstacles appear along the way. He meets new people, from his father’s ex-lover to a traveling circus band, and accidentally ends up accompanied for a while by Stela. She’s a young, spunky, street-smart girl from an underprivileged family, who complicates his journey at first but ends up teaching him a lot about life. All the things that happen to Horia change his perspective on the moment, as he learns to let go of what cannot be changed and to enjoy life to the fullest.
