Hungarian Csilla wakes up inside a crashed car, somewhere in the countryside. Her younger brother Isti is nowhere to be found. Dazed, Csilla leaves the spot to begin a second life, as she promised her brother she would. She’ll never return. Persuaded by the shady Gabor - he is involved in ‘import and export’ - she sets off with him in a freighter to Western Europe. During the endless journey, Gabor violates her and Csilla loses her only reminder of Isti. Slowly, she loses her grip. Life on board the freighter is like a vacuum in which Csilla finds herself - a surrealistic twilight zone. Hallucinogenic, surrealist trip in the twilight zone between two worlds, debut by Dutch filmmaker Ricky Rijneke, who examines with meticulous shots the fragile dividing line between life and death.
