The foursome set out on their journey full of youthful innocence. When Chloe meets American Johnny on a train everything changes. He carries a guitar and an easy smile but underneath the open exterior lies a dark past. Chloe’s relationship with Johnny puts her lifelong friendships in jeopardy.

From Treblinka to Trieste, from Carnikava to Krakow, they traverse Europe. As they continue their treacherous journey Chloe faces her deepest desires. Whatever the final destination, Chloe’s future plans are under threat.
