The story in this German language film takes place as its characters travel the autobahn. It begins with an unfortunate accidental reunion in the Berlin railroad station. Tom and Tina are two long-time homeless people who a long time ago, had a relationship until Tom walked out on Tina. On seeing him again, Tina is not inclined to forgive and forget. She knocks him out with her purse, and leaves. Tom is woken up by a frail, wealthy older gentleman who invites him to journey with him even after Tom steals his wallet. There is some promise of money at the end of the ride, and Tom goes along, hoping he can patch things up with Tina if he can get the money to make a new start.
