Simon is hiding from the police. A modest but dogged girl offers him a hiding place. But when Patty finds out that the stranger is the singer of her favourite punk band, the random meeting takes on new undertones. After all, she has sent the boy photos you don’t show your parents. Cynical Simon could take advantage of the situation, but is prevented from doing so by a peculiar attraction – which is probably called love. The youngsters go on a journey where they find that completely different people can still have something in common.

The visual and sound editing of the film is worth a separate mention. Along with all the other good things, it’s the editing rhythm that creates – without the viewer even noticing – a long-lasting emotion as the film ends.
