Three cars. Three stories. A trip to Berlin. One hot Friday evening, Peter picks up his two passengers, Carolin and Hilal, at the car-sharing agency. Peter is a swimwear sales representative, traveling from city to city. He likes to travel with other people, since it makes his long car journeys less boring. At the same time, in a car park in Kassel, Sylvester and Fabian get into Katharina′s car. Fabian wants to get away from provincial life for a weekend to go nightclubbing in the city - looking for his first great love. Meanwhile, at a service station a few kilometers further away, Loubelle and her daughter Rosa have stopped. Out of principle, Loubelle usually never stops for hitchhikers, but today is different...
Traffic Affairs links the fate of people meeting for the first and probably also the only time in their lives. Happy-sad glimpses of brief encounters in confined spaces that tell stories of real life.
