Juergen finds his greatest thrill in riding roller-coasters. But
now he is terminally ill and he doesn’t have much time
left. He decides to leave the hospital and go on his last trip
to ride a roller-coaster at the "Heidepark Soltau", in the
north of Germany.
His journey takes an unexpected turn when he runs over
Quentin, Marie’s dog. Marie urges him to take her to the
North Sea to bury Quentin. Overwhelmed with the situation,
Juergen finally agrees to take her as far as Soltau. The
situation becomes even tenser when Marie picks up Max
at a gas station. The highly emotional and sexually confused teenager is on his way to Osnabrueck for a date.
After some discussion, the three of them head off to
Osnabrueck. Gradually Juergen finds himself driving
further away from his final dream that has been replaced
by the demands of his new makeshift family and a road
that leads him to his final destination. An homage to the
famous road movies of film history.
