Sophie (Katharina Schuttler) is in her early twenties and pregnant, but doesn't know who the father of her unborn child is. She's due to have an abortion in the morning, but is undecided whether to go through with it. During the night she steals her boyfriend's motorbike and rides at breakneck speed through the city. She is at turns suicidal, but then has moments of clarity and instinct of survival. Sophie races through the night in a desperate search for something. When she finally realizes what she really wants, and tries to step off the rollercoaster of the night, her brakes fail at the last minute...
