The House of Europe, squeezed into the confines of a car interior: on a long car ride, a distinct group dynamic develops around the potent issues of our time.
Five strangers of different nationalities share a car ride from Berlin to Paris. All of them have only one thing in common: wanting to reach their destination easily and cheaply. When it turns out that one passenger has a serious problem that could get them all into trouble, the trip becomes a little more complicated. The journey must go on. How it does is now up to them!
