Three friends embark on a road trip like in high school, but things have changed - Gregor is going to war mission, Ziva is going to study abroad, while Andrej is still the same. There are secrets left unsaid. Can their friendship survive?
Ziva, Andrej and Gregor are best friends since high school. Gregor is a soldier who is about to embark on a mission to Afghanistan and Ziva is going to study abroad. Andrej is their gay friend who hates everything, himself included. They decide to go to a road trip to the seaside like they did when they were in high school. When they arrive, they get drunk and Ziva and Gregor kiss each other, what brings tension to their relationship, while Andrej doesn't know anything and just makes fun of everything, mostly of Gregor and his army ideals. The conflict erupts when Ziva, in a fit of rage, destroys their tent and tells a secret that enrages Andrej. Only then the true problem is revealed - Ziva is not going to study abroad, she was lying because she didn't want to pity her. Written by
Three old school friends a few years after high school reunite for a road trip down memory lane, find themselves at a crossroads.
A Trip takes you on a soulful journey of three best friends who reunite after high school, only to find the past is not so past. A Trip is a compelling drama, very well acted and beautifully shot. It's fresh, true independent cinema. The film takes you on a journey with characters that you might not relate with at first but as you learn who they are you will realize how much you have in common. When we first meet Ziva, Gregor and Andrej it seems like they regressed back to their teen maturity but as they make their journey we learn their lives haven't been so simple and that they are really young mature adults. It's the type of film that if you invest in the story you'll be rewarded in the end. I highly recommend that you take A Trip.
