In a moment of panic, Varnie, a San Francisco–based graphic designer, flees his stable life and career when his girlfriend reveals to him that she is pregnant. As he makes his way out of town towards southern California, he crosses paths with Nena, an untethered German tourist who has just missed seeing her favorite band live. When she learns that their next show will be down south, Nena convinces Varnie that she needs his help, and he grudgingly takes her along. As they interact on the road, their initial facades—Nena, the carefree, hippy-ish tourist; Varnie, the emotionally closed-off careerist—give way to deeper reflections on their complicated personalities and differences.
