As a child, Alex was abused by his father. Now, in his mid-thirties and himself a father, he is increasingly overstrained with his role. He doubts his ability to love, is afraid to become like his own father. Alex seeks refuge in alcohol and eventually drives off. Where? It doesn’t matter. Maybe Casablanca. Still in Germany, a strange woman suddenly gets into his car. She becomes his nonjudgemental companion.
No questions, no expectations. A run from oneself, the inner demons.
A turbulent journey through Europe starts: drugs, ecstasy, loose contacts, foreign places – they experience a surreal time in a state of intoxication, in the middle of nowhere.
The farther Alex moves away, the more he longs for his son. He has to face his demons on his own. They split up when crossing the border to africa. She reaches the destination, Casablanca. He crashes in a hotel room in Tanger and loses it completely in the vortex of his childhood trauma.
