Synopsis / Plot
Felix, a German journalist travels around United States trying to find inspiration for his next book. The trip, paid for by his editor, proves fruitles: not one idea, not one line, nothing at all. The editor decides to cut the money flow, and Felix is forced to go back to Europe. At the airport, he meets a woman and her eight-year-old daughter. He spends the night with her and wakes up the next morning to find she is gone, leaving the little girl under his care with the mission to take her to Amsredam where she will be waiting for them. And so the journey begins, an adult and a child, both whimsical and bittersweet, displaced in a world they don't understand.
