Synopsis: This is a story about a short but important passage in a young man’s life. Johan’s girlfriend, Annelie, has dumped him one month before their wedding. His best friend, Markus, has therefore bought him an interrail ticket and sent him off alone on a journey full of challenges. Both challenges appearing from the nature of travelling but also some small missions that Markus texts and forces him to do.

Johan’s journey starts in Sweden and heads through Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Spain and ends up in Lisbon, Portugal. Not really in the mood for traveling he wanders around feeling lost and miserable but along the way and through his encounters with other lost souls he starts to see things from another perspective and a possible new romance with the Russian girl, Nadia, shows him that life together with Annelie wasn’t so great after all. Later on when Annelie has another sudden change of heart and starts looking for Johan he no longer knows what he wants; whether to return to her or just go with the flow and maybe try something together with Nadia.
