SYNOPSIS

The holiday of Aivar and Leeni will take a new turn after filling up their car in a highway station. They start to act, to play the hitchhiking game – not knowing what will be different about themselves next morning. Everything seems to be fine, until the moment when Leeni becomes jealous of the character she plays. Aivar tries to end the game but Leeni is not willing to. The game becomes more and more obscene. Leeni enjoys her new “Self”. This is the type of woman Aivar disgusts.
