On a bright, wintry day, cherubic and ingenuous Heduš catches doe-eyed friend Mára and his stolen car in his BB gun’s crosshairs. He spontaneously decides to accompany Mára on a journey without destination. Two curious teenagers barely old enough to see the reality that lies beyond their dashboard, they heedlessly take on the adventures that come their way, from rescuing a canine companion from drowning to picking up their instant teenage crush, hitchhiker Bara.

The picaresque journey is told in counterpoint to Mára’s interrogation by small-town cops. With each episode recounted bringing the story closer to the present arrest, Heduš and Mára’s future remains theirs to be written.
