When biology student Jule finds out she‘s pregnant, she sets out for Portugal to find her boyfriend Alex, who works in an organic commune there. Traveling in a Mercedes „303“ camping bus, she picks up hitchhiker Jan at a gas station outside Berlin, who‘s travelling to a Spanish fishing village to try and find his biological father. They‘re both passionate and not very diplomatic, very interested in world affairs and philosophy, and while “on the road“, they have impassioned and deep conversations about capitalism, human nature, love and relationships and the meaning of life. Their trip becomes an emotional roller coaster, which finds them desperately trying not to fall in love with each other…
