Slovenia, 1999. Inspired by Easy Rider, two friends from a small village convert their mopeds into choppers and embark on a journey through Slovenia and Croatia in search of freedom and love. Along the way, they are joined by a runaway nun with a penchant for drugs and partying and an old biker who has travelled the world on a futile quest for freedom. Escaping the shackles of conservative society, they face challenges and embark on an adventure. But the path to liberation is a deceptive one. When one of the travellers dies, someone must take the blame. The film premiered at Sarajevo FF.
