He has nowhere to go...so he goes there.
An alienated young man can see no meaning in life. He doesn't even see the point of getting out of bed in the morning. To escape from his family he decides to set off on a hitchhiking adventure around Europe, and is picked up by a friendly lorry driver with an unusual interest in philosophy.
The journey takes him through a violent and Kafkaesque nightmare to a destination that changes his life.
