Hitchhiking from Sofia to Ruse, art student Kamen meets 17-year-old runaway Ave, bewitching, mischievous and a compulsive liar. From ride to ride, Ave concocts new identities for the two, each more fantastic than the last, the ruse occasionally backfiring when they're caught out by the understandably peeved drivers. Ave tries Kamen's patience, too, as the pair constantly bicker. But he's drawn to her protean character and free spirit, and can't deny that he's falling in love with her. Official Selection, 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
