In order to deal with the break-up with his girlfriend Sylvia, Ben decides to take drastic measures: He will start smoking. He will sit down in his car and drive aimlessly into the night. And he will never sleep again. During a stopover at a fast food restaurant, however, Ben's plans seem to fail: Peter, a travelling musician, wants to hitchhike to Salzburg to play at an open-mic night in a bar. Peter's openness and his zest for life soon put Ben's denial to a very hard test ... Written by
