Somewhere out there love is waiting...
They meet for the first time, after a horrible accident, underneath a truck. The sad and angry Bodo (Benno Furmann), a small time criminal, who is always running from himself as well as the law, and Sissi (Franka Potente), a shy, quiet nurse, who works in in a psychiatric clinic. Bodo saves Sissi's life, which is literally hanging by a thread, then disappears without trace.
Obsessed by the accident, Sissi sets out on a mission to find the mysterious stranger, and to discover whether their paths crossed through simple blind chance or the intricate mechanisms of destiny itself.
