A road trip on a local bus … Carla wants to see the sea one last time and persuades Anton, the bus driver, to screw up his courage for once and take a different route. A motley crew of passengers sets off for the south.
Anton, a bus driver who ferries schoolchildren and other passengers from the villages to the city year in, year out, is having a pretty bad day. He has recently fallen in love with his neighbour Doris. But the previous night he heard a man coughing on her balcony. On top of this, Carla, a passenger suffering from cancer, boards the bus saying that she wants to see the sea for the last time – right now. It’s hot, and thoughts race through Anton’s head. Courage is not one of his virtues, but didn’t Doris said she likes a man who take risks? Shortly afterwards, he makes an announcement over the tannoy: “We’re heading for the sea.”
A heart-warming story about the light and heavy aspects of life, and how you sometimes have to stake everything on one roll of the dice.
