Synopsis:

The young production assistant Tim is allowed to drive the French independent star Élodie Bouchez to the airport after the end of a long shooting day. The unexpected intimacy together in the car, the music they listen to, and the melancholy atmosphere of the drive through the night creates a bond between the two, so that it seems, at least for the moment, anything is possible.
