Horia, a 17-year-old with his head in the clouds, was born and raised in a Romanian village by his libertine father, Petrică. After graduating from high school, his heart is broken by the girl he loves madly. On an impulse, he secretly borrows his father’s old motorcycle to ride it illegally across the country to her. The journey doesn’t go as he imagines, as many obstacles appear along the way. He meets new people, from his father’s ex-lover to a travelling circus band, and accidentally ends up accompanied for a while by Stela. She’s a spunky 13-year-old, street-smart girl from an underprivileged family, and a strong brother-sister bond develops between them. By the end of this adventure, Horia gains a different perspective on life, as he learns to let go of what cannot be changed and to enjoy the moment to the fullest.
