A chance encounter at a German highway rest stop sparks youthful attraction between a thirteen-year-old Czech boy and a Belgian girl. In the short time between lunch and their departure, they try to meet each other. With the help of an Arab truck driver, and a man who looks like an African footballer, they overcome language barriers and avoid their families to spend a few minutes together. In this unassuming location, they share an experience that is unique to modern Europe.
