Synopsis

We meet three people who are locked in, stuck, in different ways: Two men in a car, and a woman in a diner. The men, at full speed, wonder if they have passed the right turn. The woman in the diner is wandering amongst the tables, serving coffee to people who don´t thank her. After closing time she breaks glasses and dance barefooted. A man tattoos a bird of prey on his arm in an attempt to find power and to be seen, another buys loudspeakers, hoping to be heard. The men crash and crawl out of the car. The woman manages to open the diner door, crawls into the crashed car and puts the pedal to the metal.
