Writer, artist, and stage designer Andrea Maria Dusl makes her directorial debut with the offbeat road movie Blue Moon, appropriately taking place during a month with two full moons. Minor criminal Johnny Pichler (Austrian standup comic Josef Hader) goes on the road with a bag of money and a blonde call girl named Shirley (Ukranian actress Viktoria Malektorovych). After she leaves him at a hotel, Johnny briefly runs into the shady con man Ignaz Springer (East German actor/director Detlev W. Buck). Trying to find Shirley with only an address on a photograph, Johnny ends up in Lviv, Ukraine, and meets brunette cab driver Jana (also Malektorovych), who happens to be Shirley's twin sister. Eventually Johnny is led to the Black Sea and into the city of Odessa.
