A shocking scene opens the film: Nina (Wende Snijders) stands by a car that has fallen into a canal while a cheetah walks freely down the road in front of her shocked eyes. We don’t know what has happened, but we’re thrown into a strange atmosphere, almost dreamlike. The prologue provides us the key to properly watch the film, its main theme the grieving of a woman who has lost her loved one and whose life is shattered to pieces. The winding storytelling of this jigsaw keeps alive, for a long while, the mystery surrounding the puzzling behaviour of the protagonist. Disoriented in her melancholic desperation, Nina starts wandering around the European highways in order to cope with the secret personal drama eating at her and, perhaps, rebuild herself someday.
